I started using rogaine and regenepure keto shampoo about 3 months ago. Since starting the regimen, I've seemed to have acquired a rash on my face, across the bridge of my nose and a little into my cheeks. It's a reddish rash, not much pain or itchiness, just red and scaly/flaky. It came up around 3 months ago (right when I started rogaine/keto) and it hasn't gone away too much since. The derm prescribed me hydrocortisone cream, but it hasn't helped.

Could this be caused by either the rogaine or the keto shampoo? I guess I could find out for sure by seizing treatment, but that of course could have a negative effect on my goal here.

Thanks guys

It could be either one. When I was applying minoxidil solution onto my hair line some of it drip down my cheek bone and the next day I had this HUGE rash pimple like. It had it for about a whole month, just be careful not to get any on your face.

Is it kind of a scaly reddish rash? I've got some on my forehead from picking at my scalp. It could be seborrheic dermatitis.

Ben_Lamb, I have been having the same reactions, been to the gp tried one too many prescriptions, it is a pain, one of them also included Hydrocortisone And Oral Antibiotics 4x a day. What was the cause? Did you find out eventually? what is your current treatment to prevent it?
Would appreciate your reply very much
