Redness and Oily
Redness isn't too unusual at three weeks, as long as it's not painful, getting worse, and goes away within another week or two that's not concerning. As for the oil, at this point you should be washing your hair normally so the oil should be getting washed off during this process.
After FUE hair transplant
wash your hair that has been transplanted with enough pressure to clean all oil layer .The redness remains just after surgery and it is "normal" to stay 14 days or
more. That pinkish redness/discoloration may fade away in a long time up to 3-4
months . İt depends on your skin color/fitzpatrick classification .(Lighter
your color, more red discolored skin after surgery)
3 weeks after a hair transplnat
You should have washed your hair more during the first day or two so that the crusting will have been taken off. Now you must wait out for the crusting to fall on its own helped of course, by shampoo and conditioners left on the head for 5 minutres before washing these off.

Redness 3 weeks post operative
The healing time varies from patient to patient. Sometimes redness can persist for 3 weeks. However, it does appear more inflamed than I'd prefer. I recommend contacting your physician so he may have a look.
