Default FUE - Post OP Day #2 - Questions

Hello everyone. I am day #2 after FUE for 700 grafts to crown area. So far so good I guess. Bleeding and oozing has stopped. Scabs are forming in recipient and donor area. I washed my hair for the first time this am with Baby shampoo in a cup and rinsed 5 times w/o direct stream of water.

I am using benadryl for the itch and spraying both donor and recipient areas with Saline every 3 hours. I am also taking Keflex (2 days left) and a Medrol dose back ( 2 days left). I also restarted my oral Hair vitamins (MSM, Biotin, Fish Oil).

My question is: Is there soemthing else I can/should be doing to the donor area. My post op instructions do not mention anything. I asked the Doc and he said Aloe Vera was fine if I wanted. In other peoples experiences did Aloe Vera or Emu Oil or Bio Oil help reducing the FUE scars/hypopigmentation from the donor area or expedite the healing process? Any other thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I will post pics and the whole story of the Doc and process in a few days. Thanks.

J

You shouldn't need saline on the donor, just Aloe Vera.
