I had a hair transplant three weeks ago and these pimples bother me a great deal and they look horrible as well. What should I do?
This could be mild folliculitis. Go back to your doctor. He will probably want to lance one of these pimples and see if any pus comes out. In any event, a culture of the lanced pimple may yield a positive finding and if it does, then an appropriate antibiotic will be used to treat it.
