Tingling sensation in the grafts : Some patients feel a tingling sensation in the grafted area. Patients must be careful not to touch, rub or scratch on the grafts upto ten days. We suggest a soothing ointment that can be applied lightly to keep the sensation away.
Scabs : Small black scabs are formed over each graft. These naturally loosen and begin to fall off by ten days. After ten days, as you gently run your finger tips over the grafts during bathing, the scabs will separate and fall.
