Spilled minoxidil
Hello, I've been using 5% minoxidil to slow down my hair loss for about a year (as advised by my dermatologist). I usually apply 1ml at a time, but I accidentally spilled about a cap (3-4ml) on my head a few minutes ago. I suddenly started to have a lot of hair fall, is this okay? I quickly washed my hair right after.

No need to worry as minoxidil absorption is very much less into systematic circulation.
