This hair loss question was answered by Dr. Glenn Charles of Florida who is a member of the Coalition of Independent Hair Restoration Physicians. His professional answer is below.
I noticed some bleeding on my scalp near the crown at 2.5 months after hair transplant surgery. Is it possible to lose grafts at this stage or could it have been a spot/pimple?
Bleeding from the grafts 2.5 months after your hair restoration procedure is almost impossible. It is much more likely that you scratched a scab or a pimple-like lesion that caused the bleeding. It is around 2-3 months post-op that many patients experience folliculitis. This is a common condition that may be a sign that hairs are starting to grow, but curled at the surface and have become in grown. If at any point you are getting several of these lesions in the same area, you should contact the hair loss doctor who performed your surgery. Occasionally an antibiotic is necessary. More often than not, these problems are isolated and resolve themselves.
