Hi Parasol.

The redness is quite normal for some patients, however, I see that your concern is with the bumpiness/indent appearance of your scalp. It is possible you picked up a bacterial infection that`s causing the skin to be inflamed. Do you have any pain or feverish symptoms? If so, a course of antibiotics may be required as a precautionary measure to aid the healing.

It is made to look worse with both your native and transplanted hair shedding. Your scalp has been through a traumatic experience and it could be that it`s just reacting differently and taking longer to heal. Hopefully, this is the case.

Have you been in touch with HDC to get the doctor's opinion?

Thanks for the reply, Bigmac! I just sent them to Doron and to the clinic directly. Doron said that everything looks right on track, but we’re going to see what the clinic thinks just to be sure.

I actually feel pretty great, which makes it an even bigger shock when I see myself in the mirror! :) I don’t have any fever, or pain. I’m sleeping and eating well, and just began my workouts again. I feel much better than I look.

I really hope nothing is wrong. I want a great result so bad.

I just took my temperature just to be sure. 98.0 F. I definitely don’t have a fever so I guess that’s good.

That's good to hear no pain or fever as it rules out things such as Cellulitis. Sometimes a topical steroid cream can help with inflammation and recovery. I have seen other patients similar to your situation that healed eventually and turned out well. Getting some reassurance from the doctor though will be good. Let`s know what he suggests.
