I just started using Minoxidil 5% spray, but I’m not sure how many pumps I should use on the affected area (front). The directions just say apply it to affected area and my dermatologist didn’t say anything either, just to use it twice a day. I’ve been using 5 pumps in the front and one in the back for good measure. Is this fine, too much, or not enough?

If 5 pumps is enough to put over the affected area, I would think 5 is your magic number. There is no absolute number. Obviously, don’t drench your scalp with it as a light covering should be adequate.
