After using Rogaine my scalp feels like it is burning. What can I do to easy the pain?
Rogaine (minoxidil) can irritate the scalp and also cause itching. I suggest using a good anti imflammation shampoo like Nizoral to reduce this irritation. In fact, when Rogaine was studied for FDA approval as a hair loss treatment all the patients in the study used Nizoral shampoo while using Rogaine.
If you continue to have scalp irritation I recommend you stop using Rogaine.
Best wishes for stopping your hair loss.
