It seem like you are suffering from Seborrhoeic Dermatitis
,which is an inflammatory process and there is an increased sensitivity to a Yeast called Malassesia,and it results is dandruff
and irritation of the skin which can further cause hair fall
I think first of all you have to control seborrhoeic dermatitis m,rather than jumping on to Minoxidil
. I will advise following,
1: NIZOARAL AD shampoo,use it atleast three times a week for 4-6 weeks.
2: as SD is an inflammatory condition so you can continue with Steroidal lotion to reduce the irration and flakes. Massage it into the scalp every night for 2 weeks and then every other night for a week and then whenever you need it.
3: capsule Lumetine
one capsule twice a day after the meals for a month.
I think once the scalp is cleared off and the irritation is cured then you can start applying Minoxidil,in this way it can be absorbed well and the results would be maximum,otherwise I am not in favour of.
I hope you can understand my point.
Thanks very much
