    Oh well, just a quick update. It is definitely minoxidil which caused my sudden puffiness. I skipped it for 3 days and these nasty wather patches went down by the 3rd day without minoxidil like 95 %. Did dutifully 2 application of my 5 % yesterday (was hoping that wather retention under the eyes is just seasonal allergy), but....woke up today again all puffy :-(

    I forgot to mention, on the mens' forum they talk about stopping it for a bit like you did to reduce the puffiness and once it's reduced to slowly start to go back on the minoxidil and try to find a level of tolerance to where you're able to use it but not get the puffiness. Maybe that would be the next step to try?

    I just hit the 5-month mark. Here are progress pictures (March through June, no concealer). I'm not seeing a huge improvement over the past month, but my hair feels a lot fuller. Please forgive the random gray hairs. I'm 2 weeks away from my next color appointment :)
