    Default Minoxidil causing bad rash on my head

    Ive been using minixidol 5 mg Foam for a week. My scalp is super itchy and i now have red dots( bad rash) on my head and on my forehead.
    My ears are also inflamed. I guess im allergic to minoxidol itself?
    Any alternative? Im disappointed.

    Itching an irritation are not uncommon with Minoxidil the liquid version contains a ingredient called Propylene Glycol the stuff causes an allergic reaction called Contact Dermatitis in people that are allergic to it.
    Problem solved Just use the foam instead the foam is not made with the stuff.
    Works great for me
