Itching on the C-section scar
I had a c section in january 2007. I always have severe itching sensation around th scar where the c section was done ever since the delivery. What could this posiibly be? Is this normal?
Many women who have surgery (C-section or otherwise) will notice itching at the incision afterwards. Part of it is the healing process and part of it is changes in how the nerves heal after being incised.
