I had FUE almost 40 days ago! Was all fine until day 17 then this redness started to appear. I know that my skin does scar from any type of skin cuts and/or surgical incisions. If it's a scar, what can I use? My doctor is overseas and wouldn't respond by other than it's normal!

Redness 40 days post op --Scar?
It is unusual to have redness 40 days post surgery. this does not appear to be scar but probably mild folliculitis or cellulitis. Would certainly contact your surgeon for evaluation. Usually in this type of situation I will use doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for a couple of weeks and hydrocortisone cream 1% twice daily .
Some people can have redness that persist weeks after surgery. If you are concerned it is best to contact your doctor.
