Hai,

I have gone through your query. What i have to say is 'Yes' there are oinments to be applied on the scalp in alopecia cases. Their role is to promote hair growth by stimulating the hair follicles in the affected region.

I hope you are continuing the medications prescribed for you by your doctor. Do take them. Meanwhile, observe your life style more closely and please try to find the cause. Sometimes, a mere modification of certain things in our life style can help in curing certain diseases.

Hope this helps,

Wish you good health.
