Heat reaction 1 year after hair transplant

I have 25 years experience and I have not heard of this complaint. I would seek out a good dermatologist and ask that doctor his/her thoughts

You have described chronic inflammation in your recipient area. You should, as soon as possible, see your most trusted physician and continue to follow up with that doctor until together you are able to find the cause and the s=best treatment for the inflammation. Don't skip around to different doctors for every visit. Stay with one doctor until you find relief.
