Question Been out of hospital since Friday - June 10th 2015, 12:28 AM

Hey everyone, its great to be back on. I went into surgery Thursday for a congenital birth defect, and had a pinch in the left tube (where defect is) and it was balloon shaped at the "funnel", so I got that fixed and I have been in recovery since I came home Friday. Yay!!! And now my incisions are itching like crazy and I don't have any cream for it, since doctors put a glue on them to keep them from splitting. So if anyone has a tip on how to treat the itching that'll be great!

I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Unfortunately, you can't do anything about the incision's itchiness. I had to had a cut done under my breast last summer for a piece of cartilage, and it itched so bad! Just keep it clean. For me, it was extra hard since it was the summer and I was more likely to sweat. Fortunately, it was a cool summer!

Welcome back from the hospital, Bethany.

As for the itchiness, I don't think there's a lot you can do for that. Itchiness is normally a sign of healing, which is a good thing! Are there any other noticeable causes for the itchiness, like dry skin and/or irritation? If so, then you might find a little relief in using a skin moisturizer. One that's safe to use given the okay by your doctor, of course!

Another tip would be to try not to scratch it, even though I imagine it's tempting and hard not to scratch. But scratching it could lead to inflammation and possibly infection. In the meantime, I hope the itching becomes more manageable and I hope that you have a speedy recovery. See you around sometime, take care!

Thank you every one for replying. I am recovering really well, so far. @Nala, there is nothing of dry skin, just the itchiness as far as I'm concerned. And @Reminiscence, the doctors had to cut 7 times, one on my belly button, one on the belly, on just below, but between my breasts, and one on the abdomen, and five little poke holes that look like the side if a die (or playing dice). Its still tempting to scratch everything, I will admit. I tried to put itch cream around but not on it and it helped some and some shea butter or coconut butter lotion and body wash actually helped some as well. And thank you, again, for replying everyone.
