Flaking and dryness due to Minoxidil
I have been using Minoxidil 5% topical solution for a almost a week now after consulting with a Practo dermatologist. I now have an itchy scalp as well as small white flakes. I fear even more dryness and dandruff, due to continued usage later and because of the alcohol or Propylene Glycol in the topical solution. How should I counter these effects? Are there any specific shampoos and conditioners that you would recommend for it or any other home remedies that could help me take care of this problem completely? Ps. I have been treated for Seborrheic Dermatitis in the past and used Cipla 8x shampoo for it and later stopped when the problem went away
