Is it strange that my c section scar has suddenly started itching 13 weeks later. Its healed very well and flat, no reddness or puffiness and is just itchy.
I had 2 other c/s and never had this. Is it normal for a scar to do this?

My two scars still itch 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 years later.

Hope it calms down for you!

I had occasional itching in my first scar for 10 years, maybe more. (I had my next section when ds1 was 10, so I don't know which scar itched after that.) All my scars have itched sometimes. In fact, my scar was itching today, and my youngest is 13 months old.

great, now my scar is itching!

I don't know how to put this delicately, but could it have to do with, ahem, hair coming back in?
