Dear Mr. Rassman,
I am a loyal reader on your blog and would like to revert a question.
I am 26 years old using propecia since 1 year and I would say I am having good results from it, meaning my hair loss came to a stop. So far I still have most of my hair, but hairline (temple area) is still receding and I would like to tried out Minox 5% topical solution which I would rub in on my temples. Since I am Caucasian and living in a tropical country I am sweating quiet often and therefor would be afraid of sweating out all the topical solution which I would rub in.
Do you think my fears are appropriate or will Minoxidil be absorb by my scalp after a few minutes?
Thanking you in advance for your answer
I suppose your concern is valid, but after you apply the medication to your scalp it should be absorbed fairly quickly. I don’t know exactly how sweat will affect its efficacy, but I suppose it would depend on how much you are sweating. You may consider applying it mostly at night before you sleep when the temperature is cool (assuming you’re not sweating at nights also) and in the morning after a shower.
