after my last ht i started to use rogaine foam, unfortunately i had to stop using it after about 6 months because i had issues with excema on my eyelids;;D.

I went to my gp who at the time adviced me it could be the rogaine or a shampoo and prescribed a cream for it...............i stopped the foam on his request but the excema remained(only on the eyelids).

The excema eventually went on its own months later, even though the rogaine had been discontinued;)... so im now seriously thinking about starting the foam again as i geniunely believe it wasn't caused by the foam.

My question for the good readers of the forum is "can transplanted hairs become dependant on rogaine too?"

What i mean by this is, that its a well known fact that any regrowth you get from the use of rogaine will dissapear once you stop using it.

Is there any facts or evidence that show that if you use rogaine on the recipient area and then stop, can/do the transplanted hairs fall just like native hairs.

I know in theory this might sound silly*nl, as transplanted hairs are not programmed to fall(in most cases)....but im sure this is a geniune concern of many.

I'm worried that if i sart the foam again after my next ht and the excema returns ;;Dand i have to stop, will it have a negative effect on my ht hairs.

thanks in advance bullit;)

Your transplanted hairs were taken from the safe zone and they should be DHT resistent.The foam may help them grow quicker after your HT but they will not be dependant on it. You will be fine in my non medical opinion.

i know that the ht hairs are taken from the safe zone and thus dht resistent dude..... i was just wandering though if the stopping and starting of the foam could cause any adverse effects on the ht hairs, and if so could they change in any way and become dependent. Probably me being paranoid for nothing as usual)(_::

thanks buddy your a star;)

I think you are being paranoid. No matter how educated we are regarding HT`s we all worry about it.

Hi BN,

I agree with Bigmac. I don't think the transplanted hairs will be affected by the on and off use of Rogaine foam - just my opinion and feedbacks from many patients.
