Many hair transplant patients are annoyed with scabs on their scalps. However, unlike the common misconception, scabs should not be seen as complications no matter how severe they area. Scabs are the most natural indicator of healing. They form on your wounds and stay there until they’ve completely healed themselves. After early recovery, they start falling. However, some people are really obsessed with scabs. They may want to manually remove them from their wounds. One should know how to remove scabs after hair transplant if they do not fall naturally.
Since scabs are the indicators of your healing, it is actually unwise to force-remove them before they fall. You can’t be so sure if your scabs have done their duty and your scalp may still be half-wounded. Your microchannels may not have the same size or may react differently. This means that some may have bigger scabs and require longer healing periods. That’s why their fall-time may change.
However, some scabs may not fall even if they’re done with their healing duty. Stuck scabs may prevent your scalp from growing new hair on it. That’s why you may have to remove your old scabs on your own. You can use baby oil and shampoos with warm water and soften your scalp and scabs. Be very gentle with your scalp and keep washing it until your scalp has completely gone soft.
After some time, you can see that most of your scabs start falling during your wash. It is important for you to be very gentle during this kind of a wash because your microchannels have also gone soft. Do not scratch your scalp with your fingers and nails because there is always risk of infection during early recovery.
