View Full Version : 9 days post fue - slightly worried
10-22-2016, 06:04 AM
I know i have dry skin (am i safe to apply e45 cream there?)
And i also have an area that was a little bit yellow at the front so i've been applying antiseptic to that so that explains the slight discolouration)
My question is there appears to be a line like a scar which has appeared. Is that something to be worried about? Might i have lost grafts?
Also what are people's overall thoughts? Does it look ok so far?

I suspect everything is fine. You can see this sort of thing in a lot of pics in the peri-transplant period. Your crusts are coalescing while they dry out and your scalp is inflamed. Follow your docs postop instructions to the letter and send them these pics so they can see what you are dealing with, but I bet you are fine.

That's normal, you haven't been doing a good enough job of cleaning, now scabs have formed and they are crusting apart, you should consult with your doctor on how to clean the recipient area. I would suggest applying conditioner and letting it set in and massage the scabs gently away.

It looks normal but you should go in for a follow up just to be sure all is going well

i kind of got that dry crack to but not as bad as yours. Did not affect my implanted hair at all.

Have you updated your clinic about you post-op progress? Would you happen to have the number of grafts and number of hairs per transplanted graft? Are you itching or scratching the recipient area? How is the donor area healing? Thanks for sharing.
