Hello,

I have gone through your query and would recommend you to continue with minoxidil lotion as it needs to be continued for 5-6 months to see significant results.

For acne take capsule Doxycycline once daily, apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the affected areas twice daily and use triclosan soap for face and body.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
