This is a really good question and something I've been wondering about for ages.

Where I live you can only buy MN creams wth a doctor's prescription & I dont even know where/how I would start that conversation with my GPLOL

Out of desperation/curiousity I bought a non-MN cream for athlete's foot and tried it on my scalp for about a week. I felt a bit discouraged and ridiculous because I didn't know if I was doing any good so I stopped.

Its called Mycota Cream (active ingredients: zinc undecenoate & undecenoic acid).

Anyone heard of this or its ingredients being good for growth? I already get a lot of zinc in my HSN vits, so I dont know if topical zinc is worth it.

I did a search for "azole" and it is an antifungal. I happened to have some Terconazole on hand so im using that. It seems that any antifungal should work. I just started using it with sulfer 8 and peppermint oil. When im done with that, im going to go to mn. Also, who in the heck figured out that mn can be used for hair growth? Smile
