Very itchy cesarean scar
« on: November 29, 2020, 10:50:31 PM »

Does anybody else suffer with this? Some nights it gets so itchy I could tear the skin off.  My youngest is 22. Have tried savlon, sudocrem, germolene etc but it doesn't help. Its sore sometimes too :(

Hi,have you tried an antihistamine cream at all? Seems a few of us on here seem to have allergies coming out,seems odd at this time of year,also allergies are heightened during meno too

Yep.  My sterilisation scar itches like fury sometimes.  In fact all 3 scars itched last week: breast, appendiscetomy as well.  I use a cold compress and Savlon rubbed in gently.

Thanks, hadnt thought of antihistamine cream, will give that a go.
It drives me crazy sometimes, I try to ignore it but  its really hard to ignore. I notice it in the evening/bedtime usually when I'm getting changed for bed. Savlon doesn't help :(

Could it be dryness?

I have technical terms like that too ;D
Its not dry, just really itchy when it kicks off. I dont scratch it with my nails as I'm sure I'd take half my skin off :o  will look into vitamin e.
Thanks

Penguin 99.
Yep mine too gets itchy at times, usually in the evenings.
My C section babes are 22 and 23...two c sections in 11 months.
A light cream or an oral antihistamine should help

Will definitely try the antihistamine cream, can anyone recommend one? Sometimes it gets a little sweaty, i have a belly flap ;), hate my overhanging bit! Both my children were caesareans, 24 & 22.
Mine kicks off in the evening too, fine in the day but when its near bedtime, drives me nuts ::)
