My 3 yr old has a several month old 6" hairless strip where his leg meets his chest :/ I'd bought MTG to try, but he welted up on a 1" test spot on his neck, so I'm not comfortable using it on him.
Since I sell it, I don't disclose the recipe. I do, however, disclose ingredients. It was quite a process though getting it right!

Scar tissue does not grow hair. Nothing makes hair grow other than Rogaine. If other products did every balding man would have a case of it. If the follicles are damaged there will be no regrowth.

yep - old wounds that do not regrow hair stay bald because the hair follicle bit is too damaged to grow hair. A product might help hair growth that's already happening, but nothing can repair the damaged hair pores.

Manuka Honey or camrosa might help? But generally speaking they grow back in their own time, so it may just be wasting your money putting lotions and potions on if nothings come through with a couple of coat changes!

I got some vitamin E stuff to try on him and started with it today; maybe that will make a difference

My vet recommended Corona ointment for new scrapes as they come up, so hopefully I can prevent more hairless "scars"!

Something called MTG has worked miracles on some pretty scary wounds. I had a stud who split his bum open and had a good 30 stitches. This guy had NO hair grow back on the entire length of the scar until I tried MTG, and the results were incredible. That is all I use now, highly recommend it.

My horse had a serious accident where he needed a couple hundred stitches. Today you can barely see a scar and I thank MTG for a lot of that hair growing back. And it grew back the original sorrel color not white.
