Patches on my scalp. Took steroid cream. What could be done?

recently i have developed 2 circular patches on my scalp . one is the size of a quarter and the other one is the size of a dime. They dont hurt or itch but they look bad as i have a shaved bald head. My dermatologist said that it was just discoloration left behind by excema. He gave me a 2% steriod cream and told me to come back in 6 to 8 weeks and if that doesnt work we will try something else????? Does this make any sense

you can apply some topical steroid like hydrocortisone,
This will help in healing the lesion.
