Things are slowly moving along. itchy, and phantom pains (more like stings) and then the very itchy ares. And now the “pimples” start to appear. So I was warned about these and to explain, when the follicles are implanted there is a guide hole made first and then the follicle is placed in position. From what I can tell there can be varying depths for where the implanted follicles settle. Some may be deeper below the surface of the scalp then others. This means as the hair grows it has to break the skin to surface hence causing the effect like an ingrown hair (not has painful or long lasting) or a “pimple” as it surfaces. This was fairly regular at this phase, which is good because I need to see more hair coming back.
