I had an emergency c-section about 10 months ago. The scar still itches A LOT! Part of the line looks completely healed like nothing ever happened and the rest of it is still red.

Does it *ever* stop itching?

Does it *ever* fade??

(As a side note, I still have unbelievably awful stretch mark scars...do those fade?)

I had major abdominal surgery 6 years ago and my scar still itches occasionally. And it sucks when it does, it feels like it's itching below the skin so you can't even scratch it. But that doesn't happen very often. And it hasn't faded much, it's not red but it's still very noticeable. And puckered. But I think it's cool.
