Had a transplant 4 months ago. I have an oily scalp. Doctor gave me shampoo for dry hair that i have been using for about 3 weeks . Now i have Seborrheic dermatitis that I'm currrently trying to treat. could the shampoo be the cause? and will this at all affect my transplant? i have thick scale yellowish clusters all over my scalp. my guess the transplanted hair trying to grow are going to have a problem :( is that true?

Seborrheic dermatitis does not cause male pattern balding or affect transplant results. You should follow up
Seborrheic dermatitis does not cause male pattern balding or affect transplant results. You should follow up with your doctor for an exam.
I generally recommend Head and Shoulders shampoo and a good conditioner and tell people to leave the conditioner on for a full 5 minutes.
