I tried using Rogaine a couple of years ago but stopped after 3 months because my eyes became very red and sore. I am considering starting to use the foam for men, 5%. Is there a known problem with the female version causing sore eyes?
Is it possiblle the foam will not have this effect – if it were indeed side effect of the Rogaine?
That could be an allergy to an added ingredient in the minoxidil liquid or it could even be the minoxidil itself. The liquid is known to cause eye irritation in the 5% solution. The female version that you used is likely the 2% formula… so if you had the problem with your eyes with 2%, I’d expect you would see it from the 5%.
That being said, it might be worth giving the Rogaine Foam a try since it is a different way to apply the medication.
