I’m 37, male and had 1700 graft hair transplant 10 days ago. I’m very careful of not touching the grafted area even if when it itch. there still a lot of scabs and now my head smells. Even with daily use of shampoo, it still stinks. Is it infected or is it normal? Do I need to start rubbing my graft area when showering to get rid of scabs? Can I now use medicated shampoo like selsun blue or nizoral? Is the graft now fully secured?
These are questions you should pose to your surgeon. It seems that you didn’t get proper aftercare instructions. I always recommend a washing routine starting on the day following surgery; however, it seems that you did not do this.
You might have an infection, so see your doctor to have that checked out.
