Hi, I was born with a mild case of ichthyosis and when I run my comb through my hair I get flakes of skin coming off my scalp. I was wondering with this disease, will it block the hair follicle from transplanting into the scalp and would you be able to perform such a transplant with my disease? Thank you.
Patients can receive a hair transplant with a majority of different dermatologic conditions. It is always best if the condition can be better controlled with medication, but if not, the procedure can still be performed.
