Minoxodil when used in the dropper, should be applied to the areas where you are having the problem.  Never use more than 30 drops, depending upon the strength of the minxodil. The higher the strength, the less the drops

Minoxidil should be applied to the region experiencing androgenetic alopecia. As your doctor to outline the areas if you are not sure. The maximum is 25 drops twice daily.
