1. Using 5% minoxidil once a day is almost as effective as twice a day treatment according to Dr Bernstein as topical minoxidil has a 22 hour half life.
2. If you are getting pimples on your scalp I would avoid applying any type of oil on it as that can’t be good. Can you imagine someone with acne/whiteheads applying oil on their face? Just seems like a bad idea to help bacteria grow. I assume you’re indian as many of my Indian friends love using oil/coconut oil on their hair and claim it does everything from stopping hair loss to curing dandruff.
3. Have you tried a salicylic acid shampoo such as tsal? Salicylic acid has been proven to help with acne.
4. Did you have a hair transplant? I’ve heard it’s somewhat common get folliculitis after surgery for some people.
5. I’d follow up with your doctor again to let them know the cream didn’t work.
This is a new case done by Dr. Bisanga. The patient wish to restored frontal 1/3 area.
