Size varies with age: Penis size varies from man to man- since you have already entered puberty, i would not panic and advise watchful waiting.

I use minoxidil 5% for my hair but it grows hair on my cheeks, front, eyebrows .. is it because I don't cover my head after applying it ? thank you
When you stop using: it, it stops growing hair! So, unless the minoxidil is running down your face while you use it, it should just help locally on your scalp. It won't by itself also increase facial hair. Also the quality of hair is fine and not thick, lustrous hair that is grown. So, if normal facial hair (coarse) is appearing, it may not be because of Minoxidil. See your doctor to examine this for sure. ...Read more
