Hi Belinda,

I wouldn't put anything on it until you have cleared it with your doctor or dermatologist. I use two prescriptions for my scalp issues: Luxiq or Olux (these are foam topical medications) and Clobex shampoo or lotion. Sometimes for a very bad spot, your dermatologist can give you a steroid injection.

Again, please see your doctor before you put anything on your lesion.

Take care,

Susan
