If minoxidil is causing itching probably from the PG [propylene glycol], would it be counter-productive to use it?
I had problems with the foam, so its not an option. I’m afraid to stop because I used a non PG formula for years that’s no longer available. So my hair is probably dependent.
If you are having issues with an ingredient in minoxidil, then you should not use it. It does not matter if you are dependent on minoxidil or not. If there is an unwanted side effect, you need to address it. I would discuss your options with your doctor.
