I had an abscess in the middle of my head

I had an abscess in the middle of my head , I took antibiotics and the abscess healed but now I had a bald spot where the infection was. I am worried that it won t grow back. Are there any creams or medicines to be applied to make the hair grow faster or that area is damaged permanently?

u have scarring alopecia means hair loss after healing.
if infection was superficial then hair will come back and grow its own
but if it is deep then chance of growing hair is less.
