I am a 22 year old male and have a small bald spot. I have had it since birth and it is literally the shape and size of a thumb print. I have been told that during my delivery the nurse took hold of my head and what resulted was a small sore. It then scabbed and I have never been able to grow hair on that spot. I do not believe it is a true scar as there are a few hairs that grow in the middle. Is there any kind of topical treatment that I could use to stimulate (or regrow) hair on this spot? I have considered Rogaine but I feel like it is a little extreme and am concerned about its health risks and longevity. Might there be some sort of natural treatment?
Medicines which are useful for such a bald spot are minoxidil and finasteride. But they should always be used under medical supervision. Finally one can resort to hair transplantation also.
