Regular Member Paco Posted June 22, 2004 Regular Member Share Posted June 22, 2004 After 3-week post-op, I find that my recipient is itchy. 33% of the grafts have fallen off already. I prefer not to scratch my scalp or else the new hairs will just fall off. Kinda nice to just keep those hairs there even though I expect most of them to fall out eventually with 2-6 weeks. Two Questions: 1) How do I clean the recipient area besides using just shampoo? (Pert w/conditioner) If I use my nails, I can scrap off a lot of gunk/oil in the recipient area. Is this normal? 2) How do I deal with an itchy recipient area? I tried letting shower water hit directly on the recipient area which helps a bit. However, I do notice that there is more gunk in the recipient area than before. Maybe there are too many sweat glands there? Half of my donor area has a fine line. The other half is still red and bumpy. Thanks, Paco Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
