Taking medicine for hair fall, have dandruff on scalp, reddish skin on face. Is it side effects of medicine?
I have been prescribed some medicines for my hairfall and sebacious glands on my scalp . Two of them being Aldactone and Minoz. I used to have dandruff on my scalp, but it never used to show. But now I have dandruff sitting loosely on my hair. And the skin on my face has become red-ish and rough. Is it the side effects of the medicine?
Welcome to HCM,
Dandruff is caused due to scalp infection you are having.
This is not due to medicines you use.
Effect on skin of your face might be due to dandruff.
NMow go for treatment for dandruff like Selsun or Selen shampoo.
Ok and bye.
