View Full Version : Spreading Minoxidil from pillow onto face, etc.

Is there any concern with dry Minox (Rogaine foam) spreading onto a pillow and then onto your face? How about touching your hair (or someone else touching your hair) and spreading it this way?

Once it's dry and absorbed into your scalp, there is nothing to worry about. If you like, you can sleep with a shower cap on you head.

I have read reports from people who put minox on before going to bed whose cats used to sleep on their pillows during the day, and the cats have become extremely sick and even died because minox is extremely toxic to them.

So yes, it can spread if it doesn't get absorbed properly. Best to wait until the minox is entirely dry and keep any cats out of the bedroom.
