When can I touch the transplanted area?

After the transplant is over then antiseptic dressing is done and at our center we tell the patient to come after two days for bandage removal and first head wash. After this mere touching the area is no problem. One will feel that scalp is numb and sensation of touching is less. One should keep in mind that the transplanted area should not be rubbed or scratched as this may dislodge the grafts and this may also introduce infection. Gentle rubbing can be started after 12-14 days of sugery.
