Pain after scalp PRP

Soreness after PRP treatment
It is completely normal for soreness after a PRP treatment. You should contact your Doctor if you experience this longer than 3 days. I recommend to take Tylenol in the meantime, that should help.
PRP Scalp Injections and Soreness
It is very common to experience soreness and tenderness at the scalp after PRP injections. The PRP is meant to cause inflammation which can also contribute to the pain post-injections.
I advise my patients not to take any motrin or ibuprofen (NSAIDs) because we want the inflammation with PRP therapy. Be sure to contact your physician's office about this.
Best of luck to you!
