Dear doctors. 3 hair transplants. Last one 3 weeks ago. All was perfect till 2 days ago. I washed my home floor by hand. I put some pressure and head down. I was sure it was OK as I read every where it was safe to do some movements or exercise 10 days after the operation. But, maybe be coincidence, few hours after it the crown area become red. But yesterday I also start feel pain. I bit not too much, but the receiver crown area is still red today.
I will go to see my surgeon tomorrow but your opinion is appreciated
1-24 days after fue it was safe just to wash the floor? Or I did wrong?
2- is it normal that redness get worst 24 days after fue? I had some redness before anyway, but not it got worst
3- every where I read, all doctors confirm that 10 days after HT grafts are safe. Can the redness effect graft grow?
4-do you recommend and product to reduce the redness?
I am posting this only because I receive similar emails daily from patients all around the world after they have their hair transplant surgery.
I want to emphasize I am honored to be sought out for my opinions on hair transplant issues. However, I also want to make it clear that BaldingBlog (or the Internet) is not a proper place to receive personalized post-surgical or medical care or advice. If there is an issue or concern after your hair transplant surgery, you need to call your doctor. Go see your doctor. If you cannot see your doctor call your doctor. If you cannot call your doctor email your doctor. It is also a courtesy to your doctor to keep him/her informed of your concerns or issues.
Washing your home floor by bending your head down seem like a normal activity and I do not know how it would relate to your surgery.
The redness may be normal but also can be a sign of early infection.
