Que: I had undergone an FUE about a week back, and while showering today, I lightly massaged the area where the transplant had been done. Most of the scabs washed off, but I am a little worried that I might have hurt my grafts too. Now, I am noticing indents on my head and there is also some blood and redness. Have I damaged my hair grafts?
Ans: The indents could very well be scabs that did not get removed and these should be removed gently with water and a mild shampoo. Apply the shampoo and work your hands gently, back to front. You need to make sure that you use only your fingers and are extremely gentle. If you are still worried, then it would make sense to go meet your doctor immediately.
