scalp irritation
Hi I recently started applying rogaine to my scalp because I noticed thinning of my hair. I have used it for two days without any problems. On the third day before putting on an application, my scalp felt a little dry so I put some olive oil on it hoping it would alleviate some of the dryness. At this point I had no irritation in my scalp. After applying the olive oil a few hours later I rinsed it off with shampoo and went for a swim in a chlorinated pool. It was after the swim/taking a shower that I felt my scalp feel a little itchy and a slight burning. I had my friend look at he noticed there were blotchy, patchy, red spots, the areas where I had applied the rogaine, followed by the olive oil. I haven't used the rogaine since, they are still here, although less severe. Do you think the rogaine itself caused this? or did the olive oil/chlorine contribute to this? Thanks
