16 months post-op - requesting judgment call


Recommended Posts

Fellas. 16 months post-op. Pleased with the hair growth but as you can see in pic: recipient area scalp still red/pink, getting frequent white flaking (little and bigger ones), some inflamed hair follicles as well. Any tips? Appreciate it.

Talk with your doc about using a topical cream steroid which can help reduce the lingering redness as well as reduce the inflammatory sensations.

 

You hair looks great Tony...;)

At this point I would probably go to a dermatologist. Shouldn't be red and shouldn't have flaking at 16 months. Might be something related but possibly more serious (and probably treatable) starting up like TE or dermatitis. You wouldn't want to lose you new found hair now. If I were you, I would go get it checked out.
