Hi, I received a hair transplant FUE type, nearly two months ago. I am a male and aged 46 years. After the first month i developed bumps of dry scalp on the transplanted area only. The Doctor stated that this was a fungal infection, so i started using Nizoral shampoo after using this shampoo for 15 day’s the condition has cleared. My question is, will this effect the hair transplant and the growth of the graphs, to become a successful hair transplant.
Thanking you for you professional advice.
I’ve never seen a fungal infection following a hair transplant, so I have no experience with this type of situation as a point of reference. I would think that if the infection is gone it should not impact your hair growth, particularly since the infection occurred a month after the transplant. That being said, I would ask these questions to your surgeon and hope for the best!
If one of my patients had a fungal infection, I would get the opinion of an expert who works with fungal infections (perhaps a dermatologist). Good luck.
