Im 21 years female , I was anaemic, easily getting tiredness due to this , I had frontal baldness & very thin hairs on my scalp, doctor suggested me to drink univit protein powder with milk , suggested iron tablets & to use minoxidil topical solution usp 5% inoxi forte . I used it for all 3 for 1 month, got slight improved hair but got dark skin colour & gained some weight, I again consulted doctor.. after 1 bottle scalp solution got emptied, he recommended me to use all 3 again … just after again using the minoxidil topical 5% solution for 2 days … I started noticing unwanted facial hair growth on my fore head , chin, cheeks , upper lip, all over the face , ears also throughout the body, from past 2 days I have stopped using it. I’m not bothered about my skin colour which darkened but seriously bothered about unwanted hair growth that to on my face.

How to use 5%
Date: 5/1/2017
How to use 5% only on effected area or whole head?


AskDocWeb: Minoxidilo usually comes with instructions for its proper use and it is important that you read those instructions carefully.

Using more of it or using it more often than instructed increases the chance of it being absorbed through the skin. For the same reason, do not apply minoxidil to other parts of your body. Absorption into the body may affect the heart and blood vessels and cause unwanted effects.

The instructions say to apply the amount prescribed to the area of the scalp being treated, not the whole head.

After 3 months my hair fall had been increased and now my hair become very thin and about to totally buld. I also mentain that I have family histry for alopecia. I face more hair fall when I feel headache. My health is also weak. I also using ketokonazole for 3 months acc. to doctors prescription. What can be the cause of my hair fall and what can i do.


AskDocWeb: There are quite a number of causes for hair loss and the treatment for each cause would be different. For this reason it is best to start by getting a complete medical examination in an effort to determine the cause.

No improvement
Date: 6/19/2017
Hi, I am a 32 yo women, suffering from alopecia for the past 10 years. i recently had a baby and my alopecia is back together with the hormonal hair loss and seems ten times worst than it was before, I must have lost half my hair volume in about 2 months and people are noticing it big time. Anyway, I have been using Minoxidil 2% for the past 1,5 month with no improvement whatsoever on the hair loss. I was wondering if this means that minoxidil is not good for me or if I am just in the middle of the shedding phase. If it is indeed the shedding phase, how long does it last? I read that one of the side effect is the worsening of hair loss. Do they mean temporary worsening of hair loss because of the shedding phase or is it a long term side effect? My hair loss has been really out of control lately, I mean chunks of hair in my hands, hair everywhere on the floor, hundreds of them when i wash them etc. I don’t want to make it worse with minoxidil, and if it does, what other option do I have? After how long should I stop using it and decide it is not working? Thanks!
