I was recommended by a hair specialist to use 2% rogaine to stop my hair loss. However, I have gotten hair growth all over my face and my body, but I am afraid of stopping the rogaine because I really dont want my hair to start falling out again. I am a 26 year old female. Is there anything that I can do, or anything else that I can use? I know that there aren’t many options out there for women. Please help! Thank you.
You are absorbing the minoxidil into your body and in your case, it is a potent hair stimulator. Facial and body hair are known side effects of minoxidil (Rogaine) and if you are so sensitive, this is not the medication for you. With regard to other options, there are not many options for women wanting to treat their hair loss, but it is best to talk this through with your doctor.
