Coverit 10%

I am a girl of 23yrs and my Doctor has suggested me to use Coverit 10%. I’m losing my Hairs in the Front portion. Will it be beneficial for me? For how much time I Should use this?


AskDocWeb: Coverit 10% appears to contain 10% minoxidil. In our country products containing 10% minoxidil are not approved for use by women mainly because of unwanted side effects such as the growth of body hair and facial hair.

Significant hair loss
Date: 8/23/2015
Hi, I had used rogaine for almost one year, I stop it 2 months ago due to skin sensitive. I started to incur significant hair loss and it seem it is worse than before I use rogaine. I am considering to resume rogaine. Will I get back hair I lost due to discontinue of rogaine 2 months ago. Thks


AskDocWeb: Once again, if you stop using this hair growth stimulant, the hair that it caused to grow will fall out. If you start using it again you may recover that hair but it is likely to take several months.

Hi Im 24 years old and have been using minoxidil 5% for 6mnths ….i had good growth. …bt wen i reduced the use of it…i started losing the hair too much and had itching sensation over my head….any suggestions would be greatly helpful…..thank you


AskDocWeb: The amount of minoxidil that the directions say to use is the amount that research has found to be effective. If you use less than that then you can expect to start losing hair again.

Twice a day?
Date: 8/27/2015
Hello sir, i m using minoxidil 5 % nd taking finax 1mg daily. But i applied minoxdil 5% only at night time before going to bed. Is it compolsury to applied minoxidile twice a day? If i applied once in a day what will be the consequences?


AskDocWeb: Ask yourself this; If you apply half as much effort that is needed in order to do a job, would you expect the job to get done? If the directions say to apply it twice a day and you do half of that, it is unlikely to produce satisfying results.

After 20 days

AskDocWeb: The directions say to consult with your doctor if hair loss continues beyond two weeks.

AskDocWeb: Minoxidil is sold under several different brand names and formulas. If what you buy has the same amount of minoxidil as what you used before then we would expect it to have the same result.
