Brief Answer:
Minoxidil lotion & mometasone lotion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and can appreciate patches of reduced hair density.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply minoxidil 5 percent lotion on the affected areas in the morning and topical steroid like mometasone lotion on affected areas at night for 6-8 weeks.
These are prescription drugs and should be used under the supervision of the doctor.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
