Hey Abraka!


Hope you are well sir! I have been using 5% Minox for over 10 years now and in all honesty, depending on brands used and how you react to the solution it will vary on the itch factor. After all of this time I still itch from time to time, going through phases of it actually. Maybe try a few things such as: Applying when damp, using different brand/ingreditents, using one daily etc. My personal experience is applied when damp defintiely held the itch back, the absorbtion from applying wet has been a long discussed method of increasing results....I suggest you have a read around the forum and other community discussions about this. I will link if need be, but GOOGLE away sir!
