    Red Bumps Rogaine Foam

    Hey guys I've been using rogaine foam along my hairline and temples for about a month now. I just recently (past day or so) noticed two red bumps on my left temple where i put the minox. Is this a normal side effect?

    Re: Red Bumps Rogaine Foam

    I've actually been using the foam for about a month as well (used the liquid for about a year), and now I have 5 or 6 red sores on my hairline where I apply it. They feel itchy and they burn somewhat as well. They are each about 2 mm in diameter. I've been using Nizoral for a year as well. I have been itching a lot lately, but I don't know if that is because of the sores, or if that possibly caused the sores. Any ideas?
