    Default Slight bleeding on scalp, Help please!

    Hi everyone

    I'm new here and had a 3 day FUE procedure on the 13th,14th and 15th of this month. On the 25th, which is 12 days after the transplant started but 10 days after it was complete, I suddenly had a lot of crust on my scalp and it was really itchy. Without thinking I stupidly decided to scratch my scalp and pat down the crusts and then noticed a few dots of blood on my scalp. A few days on the area is still slightly red but no more bleeding. I have attached a pic to illustrate what I mean. My question is, does this bleeding mean I've lost follicles in those areas and that they won't regrow? I'm so annoyed that I didn't stop myself and it could cost me dear!

    I picked a scab off early once and there was a little bleeding. The bleeding didn't mean I lost a graft. It was still in there. I just loosened the graft on one side. As long as you don't see signs of infection, you should be fine. Even if you did lose a few grafts, it seems like a big deal, but it's really not in the grand scheme of things.
