You should not have a transplant if you are experiencing folliculitis. You need to see a dermatologist to seek treatment options before having any surgery.
Can I have a hair transplant if I have folliculitis in 50% of my head?

Folliculitis on scalp
Folliculitis and hair transplant!
Of course not, as a Dermatologist I always pay atention when I am checking the scalp to look for any signs of inflamation or infection. Folliculitis is a form of that, you can use oral medication and a special shampoo to help with the maintenance and elimination of the problem. Keep in mind that when we are doing a hair trasplant we need to guaranty we are transplanting grafts with no signs of inflamation in order to be able to gowth the way we need to!!
It is not a good idea to have surgery if you have an infection on your scalp. You need to see a doctor for an exam.
