Is this infected?



Hi everyone, I got a hair transplant at an expensive clinic in Turkey last week (7 days ago). They transplanted 5000 grafts over a 2 day period.
As soon as I came back from the clinic there was a small black area in the front as can be seen in the first picture.
I was given an antibiotic ointment to apply everyday in addition to the antibiotic pills.
I have been following up with them daily by sending them picture of the progress.
They have told me that it looks like its recovering and not to worry. I however can not help but worry.
Today is day 7 and this is how it looks like today. Do you think I need to get it checked by a doctor here (in my country)?

It looks like bleeding that has scabbed over. Keep applying the ointment, hopefully it clears up soon.
Have you got some immediate post op pictures?
