View Full Version : body hair on minox

good grief...nearing 1 year of minoxidil here. started on foam and switched 4 months ago to liquid. now back on foam.

anyways, rogaine has really gotten fond of my already thick body hair and sent it to turbo drive. my beard, arm hair, chest hair, back hair, shoulder hair boundaries are expanding. hair growing on hands, fingers that weren't there before.

seems like this stuff grows hair everywhere except on the top of my scalp.

any thing to combat this? i will soon become a bald hairy caveman with man tits (thanks to fin and merck ;))

Same thing for me.

Great regrowth at start and after 5 months, I lost tons of hair.
After almost one year of minoxidil, my hair is worst, and my body hair has grown massively.
I would like to stop it but I'm afraid of the consequences.

yeah, i feel you. so much for the 'it doesn't go systematic' bullcrap. i recently switched back to rogaine foam, and i don't remember having this much body hair with the foam so i will let you guys know if that is the case. however, it probably has to do with the time span of use. (same as you, around 5 months).

Bah, pick your poison. At least you can shave / trim down body hair using a body buzzer, so you can address that problem.

I'd rather have that issue than give up the benefits of minox.

Yeah I used to say the same man but when you start seeing your beard expand on to your cheeks and small hairs popping around your eyebrows you start questioning things. Icahn shave my arms etc but where do you draw the line. I ain't gonna be plucking my eyebrows that's for certain.
