Is this a scab? 15 days post op

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so I am currently 15 days post op, didn’t get rid of the scabs until day 13, the last bit was quite stubborn. The area is now red where the last patch of scabs were and a black spot to the right of that. It is quite red but seems there are hairs coming out of those areas so hoping I didn’t do any damage and that it all looks normal. I can’t tell if that the black bit is a scab because it hasn’t moved in the last 3 showers I’ve had. Any ideas? Thanks

Looks like scabbing to me but I’m not a doctor. When you shampoo, leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse well. Or soak your head in the shower for a good 10-15 minutes to soften them then shampoo. These methods should help remove it.

 

density looks good. Who was the surgeon?

Maybe once the ugly duckling stage passes and I get some good growth I’ll put a bunch of pics up. Atm just stressing how to get this little scab off, nothing seems to be working

You are being a bit too gingerly.  Put more effort into it.  After 15 days you will not hurt anything.  Let it soak in warm water for a while and scrub away with the tips of your fingers.  If nothing works go to the clinic, they can do it for you.

Sweet almond oil is good to apply on the crusts to help get them off. It’s also good for the scalp to reduce the redness and won’t clog your pores. Don’t force the scabs off let them come off on their own. Did you go to H&W?

Haha no, it’s the same on the other side and a little on the mid scalp. Starting to shed now, Those pics were just for the scab, which it’s still there. No matter how hard I try to wash with my fingertips. Put aloe Vera or olive oil to soften it (was advised by clinic) It’s making me think it’s not actually a scab and possibly a wound? Hoping it will just fall off or heal.... eventually.

It looks like you had a bleeder that oozed out over a few other grafts and thus the scab lasted longer since the blood had to dry out first. It doesn't look like there's any other issue
