Old Scar, New Pain? help please... - November 4th 2009, 05:37 AM

So I have this huge scar on my shoulder from about 3 months ago- it needed 12 stitches but everything went fine and there was no infection or complications.

I expected sensitivity for like the first month, but this is kind of worrying me. I've tried scar products like Mederma, and just moisturizing it daily but nothing helps. Some products inflame it and just make it hurt worse. So now I'm not doing anything to it, but every day it itches and is still painful to the touch.

The appearance hasn't changed any (still a bright pink) so i don't think it's an infection...

Is this normal? Is there anything I can do? Thank you so much!


When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

My suggestion is to ask a doctor. It could be nothing, but you can't be sure! Better to be safe than sorry, right? (: Good luck to you.

I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe we’ll never know most of them.
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
