So the infection is to my Eyelids, both to left and right.
MY eye pupils were 100% ok, but it seems my tear duct was blocked and a lare pimple like cyst developed.
So applying Min/Ru/ should be avoided for 3-4 days. I'm scared now to try dermrolling again at home. May go to therapy clinic and get professionals to do it.

I was going to attach my eye infection picture, but is imgur blocked on this site? how about Reddit?

I just had to paste it here, it won't link as an attached link.

Sorry for being dense, but im not understanding the connection between dermarolling, apply minoxidil/ru afterwards, which results in an eye infection. Can you explain?

Edit: just saw your message above.

Styes can be a result of dry eyes as well - the eyelids not being able to excrete the typically liquidy substance from the tear ducts. Instead it is tougher than usual and gets stuck.

I'm not sure if Minoxidil could be related or not... but worth looking into.

I can only share my experience with styes - and my opinion for myself was it was related to uncontrolled seb/derm. I do remember finding some studies which did talk about a correlation.

You're correct and it is one of the small oil glands within the eyelid (internal hordeolum). Again never had this happen before. Not sure if it was due to Dermarolling, but the coincidence is that this, happened the first time (styes) during the same week as I was rolling.

Rolling had great result, it stop my hair shedding by 50-60%, just not sure is worth the sacrafice for chances to have damn f*****g styes in my eyes.

most people dont get infections with microneedling if they use 70% rubbing alcohol before and after using the tools and if they wash the target area. Minoxidil is most likely clean if its kirkland or rogaine or just a known brand.

Where do you get your RU?

(Im not sure about it) There is not alot of people using it.

and most guys i heard using it said it's banned in many countries.

maybe its the sourcing of the ''drug''--------- maybe the RU isnt really made in a lab with top grade pro hygene guidelines and you got unlucky

sure microneedling didnt help, but something defenitely got into your system

just throwing ideas out there

Just curious why so many people are needling without min, when the studies supported the idea that it greatly improves its effectiveness. Theres also a good amount of people who said min didn't work for them in the past but has worked when they combine it with needling

@HairForceOne @overpourgoodfortune @rizaster - I can see that some of you had a history of eye infections.
This is my first, I been using Rogaine+RU for over 3 years and never had any issue with stye in my eyes.

I have also Done Derma rolling but very shallow at .25 just to see if I can handle dermarolling.
Recently I bought derma pen .5 as I heard this would give me best result.
For first 3 weeks, YES it was just as anyone have mentioned. My shedding almost halted.

Everytime I apply minoxidil or RU I used to see around 40-50 hairs on my hands and the facial tub.

After rolling for 3 weeks I barely see more than 20-15 hairs/
I got really excited and this time I added RU in after each rolling, not just normal amout but atleast double 1ml. Around 2ml and then that's when my first stye occur on the left eye. Then it went away after 5 days. I stop everything rolling/minoxidil/ru/.

Then I restarted 2 weeks later with just Mnox, after a week I re added RU. Then I add Rolling again, just less then 2-3 days after rolling another stye appear.

So yes it could be coincidence, I'm not claiming fact as I need to see doctor again. This is really just a warning.

Eye problems, such as blurry vision, are a rare side effect of minoxidil. My uncle got it.

So after a month of no needling (and after needling for a month; 2 sessions) I can safely say that my shedding is back. They're mostly thin, miniaturized hairs. Could be some sort of coincidence but I don't think so.

This case is published in the following forum. This guy createsa butcher's shop forcing the wounds, I didn't want to upload the photo because it's a strong thing

https://foro.recuperarelpelo.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=79152&start=15

Holy crap! That guy deserves every single hair that he regrew! That must hurt like hell...

EDIT - Well I removed the photo but it would be shame for that pic to disappear from the internet since it is a proof of incredible results with hard (and bloody) work.

Going that hard weekly seems unnecessary - especially when you look at someone like numberman who never went for blood - yet regrew a ton of hair. That said, it's hard to argue with this guy's results. Dude had a pretty slick crown. Now two months later he has hair. Crazy.

EDIT:
Also - putting minoxidil on that bloody mess only 15 minutes after?! Damn.

My theory is the following, I think this guy accelerated theresults by forcing the wound to that end. I think you canachieve that result by giving a break between two weeksbetween sessions, but the results would be later.

I did not want to upload the photo for his blood intensity, so Ipublished the link

Looks like we are on something huge.
A perfected medical procedure is needed, where is follica… ?

I hope that some docs are on the spot.
