I have seen some transplant cases have this redness for quite a while, it doesn't mean your yield will be comprised, just something that might be a good idea for the doctor to look at. Try to avoid direct sunlight for a while until the tone gets more to your original skin color.
oh for sure. Even taking the trash out I put a hat on. I've been wearing one every day, any time I step out of the house. Its good to have the reminder though :)

After using precious follicles and spending all that money, Im being as safe as I possibly I can.

Quick question - which doctor did you use for your topical prescription?
Went through Dr.Coles office for the prescription. A pharmacy that he uses as well as he recommends for others that get transplants. I forget the specific name of the pharmacy though. Im actually getting them to rewrite it to drop it from a 1% finasteride to .25% finasteride.

Quick update on my daily hair loss when Im in the shower and when I use my topical.

Before my transplant Nov 11 2020 and before
, I was taking 0.5mg of propecia, once a day and rogaine twice a day. On a daily basis, I would get over than 10 hairs in my hands and noticeable hair on my shoulders and chest, while in the shower. When I would comb my hair, I would also get hairs in my comb. I RARELY shampoo'd my hair as well.

Starting December 2020- currently, I began my .25mg finasteride / 5% minoxidil blend topical and ONLY that. As of today, I have had less than 15-20 hairs TOTAL since december, that Ive seen in my hands, during a shower or when adding my topical to my head. I also use baby shampoo) once every 3 days, in my hair and might see 1-2 hairs in my hand after decent rubbing with my fingers(something I would have never attempted before my transplant because I knew a lot would potentially get pulled out)

I've removed propecia and rogaine from my daily regime and only used the prescribed topical blend.

One big factor is possibly because my hair is still getting longer and is only about 33-50% of my normal length. I may start to pull more out once the strands are longer. Ill update on that as well.

to reiterate, my first transplant zone stopped at the green line. My second will go down to the red line. Thats what Ill be pushing for since I have a round face and square head so lowering it and getting closer to the squaring off my hairline is aesthetic to my face shape.
