FUE transplant question. Should I be concerned? (photos)

I had a FUE procedure 30 days ago. My transplant area got red this week. It seems new. It's always been a little painful, as expected. I got some hot water on it that may be exacerbating things. Should I be concerned?

Concerned about redness in your recipient area

What I see on the photos is of a concern especially since it just appeared in the past week a month after the surgery. When infection occurs, this is about correct timing. Go back and see your doctor
