Is this because of improper use of minoxidil solution. can i use it carefully ?

Hi, I am 24 yrs old, and i have hair loss , I consulted an dermatalogist who advised me to apply hair4u everyday. I saw that it contains minoxidil and it has a lot of side effects such as dark spots under eyes and expansion of pores etc. Is this because of improper use of minoxidil solution or are these common effects? I am not able to decide whether to continue with it or not? Can i avoid these effects if i use it carefully, without letting it to come in contact with my facial skin? Experts please help!!!!

welcome to health care magic,
you have to apply this solution only at areas of hair loss as the side effects u r having are b'coz of skin contact on face you can continue with this treatment but if even after careful application these remain then consult your dermatologist.
