Hi,

I experienced few pimples after about 3 months of the procedure. Had a prp done and then they increased, only in the transplanted area though. Is this normal?

Yes, 

Pimples after a hair transplant are normal, they're ingrown hairs. The hairs that were transplanted are now trying to sprout, it's a good sign.

Usually does happen around 3-4 months post-op. If it is only a few scattered pimples they usually go away in just a few days with proper care. I tell patients if they are getting a bunch all in the same area and there is a general redness around it then they may need to be placed on an antibiotic. I recommend going back to clinic where you had the procedure or at least contact the doctor and send photos.

As mentioned above, it's completely normal. I was advised by Dr. Mohebi not to pop them and to come into the office if I had any I needed them to safely pop for me - but of course I couldn't resist and did it myself anyway. If you do feel compelled to do that, make sure your hands are clean/sterile to prevent bacteria and infection... But again... Don't do it. ;)
