I have developed lice after one and half weeks of hair transplant. Will it ruin my transplant ?

Loice and hair transplant

The lice should not impact the hair transplant but be sure not to pick or scratch your grafts of they will get infected. You clearly need to be treated for the lice

If you don't treat the lice it may affect your results. It is best to see your doctor for treatment.
