Hello and welcome to HCM
Do you associated psoriasis?
Because derobin is anthracyclin derative which inhibits cell growth & division and allows cell differentiation. It undergoes auto-oxidation when exposed to sun light.
Psoriasis is also known to cause alopecia.
There are certain precautions to be taken while using it:
It should not be taken during pregnancy and lactation
It should not be applied on raw skin
It should be kept in cool dry place away from sunlight
Prolonged use should be avoided
Application may cause irritation, redness, staining and folliculitis

Rest of the drugs are steroids (momate and betnosol) and immunomodulators (tacroz).
These drugs are used in alopecia caused by autoimmunity.

Thanks and take care
