View Full Version : Pimples on scalp

Hello, I am about 10 weeks post-op HT and have noticed several pimples in the transplanted area. I know this is common from reading the information, but I was wondering if this is a sign of impending growth of the transplanted hairs? Thanks

I don't know if it is a sign of impending growth but I do know it isn't a problem. I had it a little bit and it wasn't a problem.

IMHO, yes indeed those little "pimples" are a sign of new emerging growth. On average, the transplanted follicles rest for approximately 3 months and then they begin entering the (anagen) growth phase. Some patients come along a little sooner, some a little later.

If there was swelling and inflamation, oozing, etc., that would more of a sign of infection.:confused:

But it sounds like in your case, it is a good sign! Just wait and see what happens in the coming months, WOW!

Beast wishes to you in your new growth and keep us in the loop friend.:cool:
