I had an infection within the first week. Will hair still grow there? Got 3500 fue (Photos)

I had an infection during my first week but doc saw it after 4days of infection. by the one month mark it became better. I'm wondering if the grafts are compromised? My previous hair in that area isn't growing either. By the pictures does seem normal? These pics are 7weeks in.

Infections can cause hair loss in the grafts that are infected. Hopefully that will only be a few of them and with prompt treatment you will be fine

Possibly. There's no way to be sure except by waiting to see if the area starts growing in the next couple of months. Infections can kill grafts but depending on the severity of yours it may not have had an effect.

You would need to ask your doctor about your prognosis. You probably would need to wait to see if your hair will grow.
