Worried... should I get pinmples 1 month after surgery?? Progress Pics included

Recommended Posts

First of all its been just under 4 weeks now since my temple/ hairline lowering transplant.. the shockloss seems to be still happening (been doing so for about 2 weeks now) but hopefully will slow down as been 2 weeks of it. Right my main worry here is should a shed hair graft look like the pic I have included or is the black bulb at the end bad news? Quite a few of my fallen hairs seem to have this black bit at the end... this worries me.

Another thing is I have washed my hair everyday since with the baby shampoo at the front and my normal Alpecin at the back. I have what I think (hope) is a pimple thats a bit red abd bloody the last day or two... I touched it gently and its actually quite painfull, like a stinging sensation. Is this a pimple of a lost graft? i can't honestly see how it would be a lost graft though as I have been extra careful, even wearing socks on my hands when sleeping.

 

Another quick question I have is I have never used Rogaine before and thinking of starting it to make my hair lost through the shockloss to all grow back healthy and hopefully at a better rate... is it a bad time for me to start in Rogaine having never used it before?

 

Really worried, someone offer some wisdom please. :eek:

 

I hope my pics help.

 

Kind regards

Hi Saskue,

 

Aside from the few "red" spots, it all looks pretty normal for the 4 week mark. Keep in mind that shedding is still very normal at this stage, and dislodged grafts will usually occur from the 0-10 day mark and involve noticeable bleeding.

 

The small areas of irritation could be caused by a variety of things. Frankly, while it's likely that the spots are caused by simple irritation (or something of this manner), I highly recommend contacting your operating clinic/physician and asking for advice. It's always best to follow their post-operative advice as closely as possible.

 

Good luck!

Thank you for the info. I have really been following everything post-op instructions tell me. I have been wearing a loose beanie hat allot but its always clean, maybe this could be the cause of this red spot.
