I'm wondering if this is a normal part of healing or something odd. I had a c-section almost four years ago. My incision has long since healed, of course, and left a lovely little scar but in the last week I noticed I have a pea-sized lump, blister?, over the end of the scar. Should I be concerned? Any thoughts on what it could be?

Hmmmm. . .has it always been there for you Jessica36? Mine just appeared about two weeks ago. First it was a bump and I thought maybe it had always been there and I didn't notice, but then it got bigger and now it's definately blister like. I'm wondering if it is an old stitch or something making it's way out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I had one one a nasty strecth mark on my hip. Wonder if they are the same.<br><br>
The blister/bump thing took about three weeks to go away, but I can still see where it was. (2 or 3 months later)

Yes actually it has. Could be that you are wearing something that is rubbing against it? I know when I was at the hospital for my 2nd CS I actually got blisters next to the tape!

I think its where the knot went if you got dissolvable stiches (bumps only not blisters). My Dr told me something about that when I was leaving the hospital.

What about something simple like an ingrown hair?<br><br>
My scar is only 11 weeks old, sigh, but I've already had my share of those around the scar, and I would imagine that a hair growing through the scar, even years from now, could look like a blister.

I think it's going to remain a mystery. The blister got bigger for awhile - then popped (sorry tmi!) and is now all healed.

Sounds like an ingrown hair or irritated skin follicole... I had one in a stretch mark on my stomach once and my thigh (both of them PP when my skin was shrinking) and my gosh did it hurt and look nasty! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">:
