So after perusing some other health forums, I discovered that many people on the hairloss forums have been using TOPICAL spironolactone OVER THE COUNTER on the scalp to help with hair loss. From what I can tell, topical spiro is legally treated like low-strength minoxidil (Rogaine) and can still be bought over the counter!
If you are interested in trying it, you might want to pick up some now...since derms can now prescribe topical spiro for acne, some greedy big pharma company might try to regulate OTC spiro out of existence
It comes in 2% and 5% formulations. As it used on the scalp skin, I would presume it is safe to use on facial skin.
