Thanks for the query.
Yes Mintop will surely work, but it takes alteast 3 months for it to show response,
so please be patient and keep using it.

Along with this also take tab androanagen one tablet daily for 3 months.

Thank you

Will minoxidil work with dandruff. I doubt that ,mintop causes me itching and dandruff.
Also can i shampoo daily. Because otherwise i feel itch on my scalp if i dont shampoo.

Ya dandruff wont be a problem with its action.
Slight itching is a common side effect of minoxidil, but if itch persists for more than 15 days you should stop using it.
Yes you can use shampoo daily, use a mild shampoo like triflow.
Thank you
