But on mederma, ASAP Silver gel, Vitamin E lotion, or any lotion MAY help. The incision itchiness will subside.

Wait until you lose a lot of weight and your arms start itching non stop. All the lotion in the world won't help. My NUT acted surprised by this side affect yet others here report the same symptoms. I've not gotten any answers but can only think maybe it has to do with extreme excess skin, muscle losing from skin. I'm 62, probably too old to help even with arm exercises. Weight loss 70+ lbs in 4 months. 8 lbs from goal.

Just as long as there is no red swelling(really obvious) and you can breathe and swallow okay. I was allergic to the dermabond so I had to get shots and get it removed.

Mine itched horribly when I still had my staples in ..it about drove me crazy..I would gently scrub them with a washcloth and antibacterial soap..it helped. We weren't allowed to put anything on them other than that while it was healing.

Incision itching is perfectly normal as it is a part of healing. You mentioned that your arms itched all over, that is usually a sign of dehydration for us. It takes alot more fluids to keep those of us who had WLS fully hydrated.

If you notice your skin is itching try drinking alot of Water or sf non carbonated beverages. It will definitely help.
