Q: I stopped using Rogaine for my hair transplant, when can I start using it again? And would it be any different with the new Rogaine foam. — J.N., London, United Kingdom

A: I would wait at least 7 days to use Rogaine (minoxidil) in either liquid or foam.

The foam has less alcohol and can be irritating when applied to open wounds, but should be fine one week post-op.
