Shall I use my Psoriasis scalp lotions after FUE hair transplant surgery?

I had FUE ht surgery a month ago .. Also I have mild psoriasis ... Before surgery my scalp was completely clean and now very few small psoriasis plaques occurred and this is normal .. Can I use my regular psoriasis lotions with cortisone and steroid content on my scalp .. I use dermovate scalp lotion .. I am afraid to harm my transplanted new hair ? Shall I use it or not?

Lotions after FUE

After a month you can go back to your normal routine regarding your hair and scalp, assuming there are no unusual circumstances surrounding your case. Ask your doctor but using your psoriasis lotions will probably have no effect on your transplants.

It is best to ask your surgeon about post operative care as each doctor has their unique regimen.
