I have an infection, will this harm my hair growth (photo)?

It has been 2 months since the hair transplant and now I have pus all over the graft area. What shall I do?  Will it harm my hair transplant? I live in New York and went to Turkey for the transplant so my doctor can’t see me unless I fly back there. 

Yes, pus throughout the recipient area is a problem and it can harm your eventual graft growth.  With your doctor out of the country and inaccessible, you should find a local hair transplant doctor or a local dermatologist to get it treated ASAP. After an examination and a culture of the pus, the doctor will treat it with an appropriate antibiotic.
