    Default Minoxidil and Sun Exposure

    I have been on minoxidil since around january and now that the nice weather is on its way I just had a quick question. I have recently heard that minoxidil makes you sensitive to sunlight. Is this only when its actually recently been applied or all the time? I was wondering if I can still go to the beach or go for a run and get a tan or do I have to spend my summer in the dark recesses of my bedroom, Thanks for your time!

    I spend plenty of time out in the sun. If your scalp is showing but you still have enough hair for Dermatch to work, give Dermatch a try.

    If you still have a decent amount of hair I would not worry about it. If you do not and your scalp tends to get burned easily I would recommend sunblock or a hat.
