Sunburn after hair transplant


#1

Dear all,

I’ve just had a transplant (two weeks ago), and per my clinic’s advice i am wearing a hat.

Nevertheless today I must have been an hour without it and it seems like i got a little sunburn, not very sever but i do feel my head ia a little “ichy” and there is light redness.

I am really afariad I might have damaged my hair transplant.

Has anyone went through such an experince and can still say that his result were satisfacotry?

Can any of you advice/recommand ways to deal with the situation?

Any help would be highly appreciated!

First of all, don’t go out in the sun without a hat on, especially for the first month!!! After that, I would definitely use sun screen if you are unable to wear a hat outdoors. You definitely don’t want to wind up a year later with a poor result and then not knowing if it is something that YOU did…

You should call your doctor’s office immediately and ask them for advice on the situation, there may be something you can do to minimize any damage that may have been caused.

too late, damage is done, don’t do it again next time.

Hope you havent effected your final outcome. Whats done is done. Just learn from your mistake and atleast make sure it never happens again.
A family member of mine burnt the back of his hand with boiling cooking oil, and it swelled up like a one inch thick balloon full of fluid. He bought an aloe vera plant and religiously put the gel on it 3 times a day. Now 3 months later, not even a scar. Im not qualified to say if its something you should try but if your Dr couldnt see anything wrong with it I guess worth a try.
Good Luck
