My concern is about minoxidil use hair transplant post-op. I have searched online and have come across concerns about red irritation on the hair transplanted area with the use of minoxidil but haven’t come across an answer if i should stop or not.
I have irritation and it gets red and kind of hot as if i am having an allergic reaction to it. I have discontinued the use and it seems to go away, but will it stop the growth of my hair? PLease help… i can’t seem to find an answer anywhere.
Minoxidil does cause a pink discoloration to the scalp, as it is a known irritant in some people. Stopping the minoxidil will not stop your newly transplanted hair from growing.
