Ahhh! Itchy!!



Recommended Posts

I'm soooo incredibly itchy!! Is anybody else itchy? My incisions itch like crazy. I can't think about anything else. I'm wondering if its safe to put hydrocortozone cream around the incision, they are mostly healed up, just a little scabby here and there. But ugh! The internal itchy, CRAZY!

Must.......not.......scratch.......CRAZY!

Ok you are healing, that is why they are itching. Do not put anything on it that is vasiline based. It could soften the stitches or dermbond and bust open. You want them dry and clean. Sorry about all the itching, that is just your body telling you that they are healing fine.

My seven incisions are itching as well. Mt doc said not to put anything on them...same thing with other surguries. Just keep them clean and wear loose clothing.

Ahh, good to know! Glad someone's Dr. covered that topic.

Now the only hard part is to keep from scratching!
