I've been on minoxidil for 1 month and already my worst fears have been confirmed. In the past few days I've noticed my skin has changed texture, excessive dryness on my whole face even my eyelids (never had dry skin there before) and fine lines and tightening on my forehead with loose and non-supple skin on my cheeks, eyelids and bridge of my nose. Also my skin has lots of redness and burns, but no itchiness. I'm 26, so it's not natural aging and yes, I do moisturize and drink water but my skin looks worse than my 58 year old mother's. I've been having regrowth - I notice basically a shrub of hair around my crown. I can't give up a regrowth regimen altogether because the state of my hair loss is so advanced. But I can't also look like I'm in my 50s while I'm in my 20s. There's just no winning with this. I'm back to being on the verge of giving up on life completely and I know it may sound "dramatic" but I've been miserable for all of 2015 and this was my last hope to get my life back. Where do I go from here? Is there any hope of this being a reaction to the liquid minoxidil and that I might be free of this with the foam?
