Scar treatment / itching at incision sight 12 days post-op

Just wondering how soon I can start using vitamin E or other scar treatment on my incision. I had a TAH (vertical incision). It's starting to itch from healing. What is the best product to use?

I'm using an icepack for itching and it works great.

Ice pack and bendryl helped mine...I did not put any type of cream or oil or anything on it. Check with your doctor before putting anything on your incision.

After you are cleared by your doctor to apply anything on your incision the two products I really like are mederma scar gel and palmers skin therapy oil which has vitamin e and cocoa butter in it. Both products work great!

Thanks for the info, ladies. I've been afraid to put anything on it yet. I don't go back to the doctor until August 7th! I didn't think to ask about it at my post-op follow up appointment. I guess I'll just wait until I see my doctor again.
