Hair Loss

  • Male pattern baldness in males and females can be treated OTC
    • Rogaine = minoxidil
      • Restores the appearance of hair via camouflaging thinning hair & regrowing hair
        • Therapy must be continuous (BID) & indefinite (forever) to maintain re-growth   (can work in as little as 4 months)
      • Women’s rogaine contains 2% minoxidil
      • Men’s rogaine contains 5% minoxidil
      • Consequences of use:  local itching/irritation
        • Rarely: acne, increased hair loss, inflammation/redness of skin, swelling of the face, allergic dermatitis
