How do I clean my donor area which seems full of scabs (with photo)?

I had 4500 grafts and can’t seem to get these scabs off .  It is now 30 days since my surgery and although there are less scabs, they seem to remain. What do you think of the FUE area?

These crusts should never have formed. You should have been instructed in a washing protocol after the surgery that would give you no crusting. I’l bet you also had crust in the recipient area as well and had to wear a hat for cover. The donor area where the FUE was performed is too large, too high and too low which means that some of the grafts that were removed are not permanent hairs.  The doctor seemed to want to push the numbers high so he/she extended the donor area outside the safe area. Is that what you asked the doctor to do?
