If there are many pimples, you might want to see your doctor and make sure that there is no infection present.

Post hair transplant pimples

At this stage when hair follicles begin to awaken and the hair pushes through the skin, touching or scratching may introduce bacteria resulting in a low grade infection. See your doctor for follow up care.

Redness and pimples few months after surgery may mean you may have a small infection. You should contact your doctor.
