oh my goodness, my incision is healing, and it is sooooo itchy is there anything anyone has found for some relief from the itchies, please, !!!! it is making me absolutely crazy, and my incision is still partially open, it opened right after the staples were removed. it is closing, but i like i said, there still is open spots , i am afraid to scratch around the incision, rub it, or even touch anywhere near it. please any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
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
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
