Yes! Fluocinonide actually has a "solution" form to make it easy to apply to the scalp. It's not actually an oil but more of a watery solution. Ask your doctor to write the prescription specifying "solution"... I use both, the ointment on the face and the solution directly to the scalp. Hope it's not too late :)
