"Hi!
Welcome to Healthcaremagic. com.

I have read your query in detail and do understand your concern.

You can use Minoxidil 2% lotion to be applied over the affected area twice daily.
You can use tugain lotion.

Minoxidil is quite safe to use, and has to be used continuously for atleast 6 months for resumed benefit.


Hope this helps!

Good luck!"
