Folliculitis fluid collection post hair transplant
It is best to follow up with your hair transplant physician. It might be a folliculitis or just accumulation of sebum from hair oil glands. At times the oily secretions of the hair glands cannot find their way out and develop a collection. Post hair transplant infections are rare, but they can occur and you need to be evaluated by your doctor.
If you are having issues after surgery, especially with "pus" you need to contact your doctor.

large, pus-filled pimple in the recipient area is not a normal part of the healing process, you should be concerned that you might have a small, (easy to cure) beginning of an infection
