I recently have been trying to apply minoxidil into my receding temples and frontal area. There has been no shedding, and some minor itch and redness. after about two weeks i have felt some small swelling in my temporal area. This swelling is similar to, 2 little goose eggs/ or small lumps. They don’t hurt, just itch slightly.and they are also not noticable unless you touch the front of my head?
whats that all about anyways? I know minoxidil is not 100% intended for the frontal/temporal areas but im just trying to stop or possibly slow the hair loss process down.
Perhaps you are sensitive to minoxidil. I really can’t say for sure in your case, but some patients cannot use minoxidil due to skin sensitivity and/or allergic issues. You may wish to speak with a doctor about that… and consider asking your doctor about finasteride, an oral hair loss medication that tends to work better than minoxidil.
