If 7 others doctors you've seen cannot help you, it would be highly unlikely doctors on the Internet may be able to help. Persi

Removing hairs will not likely make the pain go away.

Chronic pain after the second transplant

You and your doctor need to meet, you need to be examined and you need to get an opinion from your surgeon as to what is going on. It does not sound good

Perisistant Pain After Hair Transplant - Not Normal

it sounds like a couple of issues are going on. 1. Pain, this is unusual, see you physician in follow up to evaluate cause of pain. 2. Skin being lower? If it is a small area it could be from incorrect placement of grafts. If larger could be from bleeding under the scalp. See your surgeon.

Persistent pain after a hair transplant

houssam23,

Persistent pain after a hair transplant is not normal. I would recommend that you return to your surgeon for an evaluation and treatment.

Pain

it is best to be examined by the hair transplant surgeon who performed your procedure. having some discomfort after HT is normal, but it should not be persistent, and may be a sign of something else going on.
