Fucidin H is a topical treatment which contains an antibiotic (fusidic acid) and a mild steroid (hydrocortisone).

It is not typically used for psoriasis unless that particular combination of ingredients were required.

It is rare for psoriasis to become infected so the fusidic acid is unlikely to help.

I rarely recommend hydrocortisone for psoriasis as it is usually not strong enough to be effective

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is quite a difficult form of hair loss to treat because the cause is unknown and once scarring has occurred in the affected hair follicles the hair does not grow back. The aim of treatment is to prevent further hair loss.

In my experience potent topical steroids are worth using (eg Dermovate scalp application) but might not be enough. I have used oral hydroxychloroquine in some patients with success but have found it not effective in others.

You should discuss the options/risks/benefits with your dermatologist.
