Default Rogaine foam in Dubai

Hi all,

I have a couple of questions here, a month ago, I started to use a Generic Minoxidil 5% that caused me skin irritation and very bad itching along with using Nizoral shampoo twice a week.

Reading on the internet that Rogaine foam doesn't cause such sides, I started to look for the foam around Dubai but unfortunately I couldn't find any foam, only the spray/liquid is available.

So would the foam help me get rid of the irritation and itching as I read or not ?

And the last thing is that, was anyone here able to get the foam to Dubai through Amazon or even was able to find it locally ?

I'm afraid that the foam could be prohibited for a silly reason.

Allegedly, the propylene/ethylene glycol in the liquid minoxidil cause scalp itching, dryness, and irritation. Many individual believe that switching to the foam solution, which contains less alcohol and no propylene/ethylene glycol, greatly decreased the irritating side effects.

Additionally, if you're looking for a place to order Rogaine foam online, I highly recommend our online hair loss shop.
