If you have itching after a year, it probably is not related to your surgery. You may want to go see a dermatologist.

Itching after Hair Transplant

It is unusual to have itching 1 year after hair transplant. It could be a topical allergy to shampoo or other product. Fucidin is topical antibiotic. Do they suspect an infection?

Itching after a hair surgery

Itching can occur post transplant ,this is normal and it is a part of the procedure . The cause of itching at the first week  is usually different than the cause at the upcoming months . In general itching may occur due to usage of  topical products such as Rogaine and Minoxidil. My advise to you is to consult with your surgeon to see if something goes wrong.

All the best
