To be clear, FUE is NOT a scarless surgery and the rubbery bumps may be FUE scars (all 2300+ of them). It may get better with time but only time will tell. Any cut on the skin will leave a scar (FUE is not an exception). The moth eaten quality is a common description of what a FUE scar looks like with hairs cut short (especially when you don't have a high donor hair density).
If you are a math type of guy, 2300 FUE holes are equivalent to 2.8 square inch of bald skin that is contributing to the moth eaten look with your short hair cut. (pi x (0.5mm)^2)x2300 ... convert this back to square inches
Redness and purple color is not typical. You need to follow up with your doctor for a recheck.
Nothing seems to be too worryful.
Will like to go for wait and watch.
Redness can be due to minoxidil also.
Wait for two months and report.
