    Hello, Is it discharging any fluid? If yes, what's the colour? Is running fever? What other changes have you noticed in him since all these started apart from the reclining hair growth? Can you send an image of the lesion for clarity sake?

    No. there's no discharge, fever or any sort of discomfort. it came as a small dot, now it's all over his front hairline. I can't take a picture now cos I'm in d ofc.

    OK. I will like to see the picture later if you don't mind. skin lesions are better seen than described. Considering the chronicity and absence of fever, it's like a fungal infection. It might take sometime before it clears if that's the case. But let me see first, then I will know what to do. You can always contact me here. Take care

    This is what it looks like doc. It came out like a small faint mark, then it spread to the whole frontal hairline.

    Pictures received. The lesion looks more like a form of dermatitis, meaning an inflammatory skin reaction. It doesn't look like an infective lesion. It's probably a reaction to something. You should stop applying any topical agent on it for now and see a dermatologist for specialist care. Take care
