Did you shed grafts after 1 month. Today is exaclty one month....i haven't seen significant shedding but dont know how it will pan out in next few days.....I am feeling itching kindda thing after shower...i dont know if that is because of tugain foam i am using or it is generally that healing thing.
Shedding started for me after 5 weeks. Itching is quite natural, I do have it even now.

Default Tugain Foam problems

Tugain foam i think really hurting the scalp, a layer forms on the skin. Today i tried to remove that layer from small transplanted area, it started bleeding a little and 2-3 grafts came out. I dont know if this was normal shedding...because it had happened to me before transplant when this layer forms on the skin, i used to comb it and this used to happen slight blood use to come out. I am just hoping the grafts are still intact.

Does this happen with all of you that a layer forms on the skin because of tugain...is it dandruff or dried medicine ?

I am not using any hard shampoo even now for dandruff etc as i have shaved my head very close, and dont wanna hurt the grafts....

Any advice...

I myself started Tugain 5% from Cipla 1 month post op. No problems. Even though the doctor (Radha) told me that its not an issue if I apply it anywhere on the scalp, I do use it only on the crown. I don't apply it at the front, where all my transplanted hairs are progressing. Also, its written on the medication leaflet that Tugain is most effective on the crown region.

Hi guys .. I am wondering how can you determine if the hair that falls out is a graft or just shedding ? I have now started getting a lot of shedding ... and its increased since I started using a cap.. any inputs?

I am also using saw palmetto currently.

Simple. Nothing to worry about unless you see blood. If you see blood coming out, it may mean the graft is displaced otherwise its just shedding.

Hi tuji.

I'm thinking dr Radha too, I've been emailing her. How is your hair look now? You happy with the results so far?
I have to make the trip from Australia.

I think I have lost most of my transplanted hairs. It has been 3 months now since my transplant took place. Will upload my pics, you yourself judge.

When i spoke to doctor about the same, she said look at yourself after 6 months.....so I am keeping fingers crossed and hoping for a good result....

It will not be fair on my part to say any decisive thing as of now.....Jan-Mar2013 will be the time when i will know if there is a significant impact.....
