Donor line. The Neosporine ointment makes it more visible. I go back to work a week after the rest of the staples are removed and will switch to the Neosporine cream. I think that will make things less visible.
Still a little crusty. I combed the hair back after putting aloe in to try to make things more visible. I'm still experimenting with the best way to take the pics.
Another pic with no flash but I think the flash shows more. For some reason my head looks more round or something compared to the flash pic, but I used the same lens... now that I think about it, I think I set the cam to macro mode in the flash pic. I also think the pic might be taken at a slightly different angle and not as straight on as the flash pic. It also looks like only one focus zone was used, focusing only on the natural hairs I have left in front.
Nothing much has changed since the 8 day mark. The donor sides are still a little tender when applying neosporine around the remaining staples, but not as much as before. I can't wait to get the rest of the staples out. I have some slight itchiness around the staples in the back. I have been gently washing the grafts with my hand and applying aloe. I think the rest of the crusts will be gone in the next few days. Still sleeping in the recliner with a neck pillow. I notice a little tightness if I bend my head far and look down. I'm trying not to move my head at extreme angles, left, right, or down.
