I had hair transplant 5 yrs ago and am very pleased w/ the results. My only question is this: I still have some scabs that form on the crown of my scalp, even after 5 yrs. They are irregular shaped and are off white and some have hair in them when they come off. One in particular is the size of an pencil eraser and it comes off, then later on, it reforms again in same place. The others are about pinhead sized and keep coming back too.
So is this going to be an ongoing thing? Thank you!
On rare occasions, I see patients with ingrown hairs that present this way. If a doctor should look closely at the exit of the hair, one might see what looks like two hair coming out of the same hole. One of those may be the ingrown hair, which can be teased out with a pair of forceps. Otherwise, I would have to see you to give you an opinion.
