Itchy C-section scars
Hi Doc

My daughter was born via C-Section just over 19 months ago. I am a bit concerned because the scar tissue from the op is very itchy, moreso the little scars where the individual stitches were .Is this normal and will it pass?

Itching is common. as long as it is not red and inflamed, try using Bio-oil on the scar area.
