View Full Version : dandruff after Hair transplant
07-28-2015, 02:05 AM
I had undergone hair transplant 5 months ago. And my hair is growing good. But now I am having severe dandruff in my transplanted area. My skin doctor advised me to apply topisal 6 lotion in the night. I am afraid whether it will affect my transplanted hair. Please advise me.

This can be seen sometimes after a transplant and it is not unusual. Treatment of this should not affect your transplant but make sure to talk to your hair doctor.

As Dr. Rashid mentioned, you should confirm with your surgeon just to be safe, but there's really not much you can do at this point to negatively impact the grafts (aside from an extreme sunburn, for example.) I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to treat the dandruff however you can.
I've had problems with dandruff my entire life and have found very few things that actually work for me. It's good you have a possible solution provided by the dermatologist. Hopefully it works for you. :)
