Hi, Oh I remember that dreadful itch. It always started just before I went to bed at night. Have you tried benedryl anti itch cream? It seemed to work great for me. Also putting anything cool on your incision like a frozen bag of veggies our an ice pack might help. Take care! Melanie

oh so itchy incision

I have that itching going on as well! Oh my gosh it drives me crazy. I have not put anything on it except a cold colth compress when I use the bathroom. Mostly to make sure it is clean always!! I have this fear of infection so am trying to keep incision very clean. I have appt tomorrow and hopefully stiches will be removed. They are the worst, my jammies touch them when sleeping and it starts the itching all over again! I also have an open spot and that concerns me although I know it is healing, still worries me. Good luck
