Painful, itching around stitches! Help!

I know that during the healing process itching can occur, but this is unreal. It's not even directly on my stitches, but spreading around. I thought it was a reaction the band aids, so I removed them 5 days ago thinking it would go away. It's gotten worse. I'm itching so bad! I called the dr. they told me to take bendryl and use cream, but it's NOT WORKING! And one of the pieces of medical tape fell off and I noticed that it's still not healed all the way (no blood, just not closed away) Also there is fluid coming out of my stitches....is this normal?!

I moved your post from pre-op to post-op so you can get help from the women there.

I would contact the doctor again and tell them what is going on.

Re: Painful, itching around stitches! Help!

I would encourage you to call your doctors office back and ask them to take a look and just make sure you don't have an infection starting. Keep an eye out for increased redness or swelling, warmth around the area and foul smelling or looking discharge.

It could just be that you are having an intense reaction to the medical tape of stitches themselves, but if you are not getting relief from benedryl you might want to have the doc take a look.
