Minoxidil producing hair elsewhere

Recently, i have to start shaving my mustache once every 3 days since the growth is much more noticeable and i have started growing a visible soul patch??? I don’t have a speck of hair for a beard and under my lips, so a soul patch is so off-putting when i saw it in the mirror. Also, i only apply the min on my scalp so its weird seeing growth on places other than the top of my head. I will just take these changes as a good sign!

It means that you are absorbing enough minoxidil in your body though the skin to produce hair elsewhere. When women use it and this happens, they get facial hair and body hair as well.  maybe you are using too high a concentration of minoxidil?
