Safe Treatment For Hair Loss In Pregnant Women?
In the morning I want to ask, is Minoxidil 5% or Regrow Forte safe for pregnant women to use? I have been suffering from alopecia since before I was pregnant, I used Minoxidil and now I am pregnant while my disease has not completely healed … I’m afraid to use it again, is it dangerous or not ?? Continue or not? Thank you
Topical minoxidil is a drug used to treat hair loss. Minoxidil in pregnancy is category C, this means that the drug is only used if the benefits outweigh the risks.
Minoxidil is a prescription drug, so its use must be based on a doctor's recommendation and under a doctor's supervision. I suggest that you consult a dermatologist first before using minoxidil, whether you are pregnant or not. The dermatologist will first check the condition of your hair and provide safe handling for pregnant women.
Hair loss itself can be affected by many factors such as malnutrition, hormonal factors, drug side effects, stress, thyroid disease, diabetes, scleroderma, lupus, and lichen planus.
Some tips that you can do to reduce hair loss are:
Consult a dermatologist about the drugs used Washing your hair every 1-2 days Avoid combing your hair when it's wet Choose a hair comb that is rarely toothed Avoid tying your hair too tightly Avoid damaging hair treatments such as pinching, coloring your hair. articles related to the topic of your question:
