Getting rid of the itchy feeling?

Postby cathbou1985 » Tue Aug 27, 2013 5:17 pm

Hello all,

I got a tummy tuck last wednesday and so far everything goes well cept one little thing... Im itchy everywhere!!

I know its a sign of healing, since I saw my doctor monday and he said my scar are all perfect and except a little rash from the tape, everything is looking great.

Is there anything I can apply that would help with the itch I have all the time?? I guess having my garment on all the time isn't helping either to let the skin breath.

I put some skin lotion after the shower but it doesn't seem to last long enough.

Any tip?

I can relate with itching that you are experiencing I just had a tummy tuck mastectomy surgery December 4 and was itching like a monkey. I am an Independent distributor for Young living essential oils. They are therapeutic oils that I used topically. I used peppermint oil,wintergreen, and lavender. The oils also helped with my scarring and bruising. Not only did the oils relieve the itching it did not come back for days. I read online that you can use Benadryl but I prefer as little medication as I can get away with. I have a website where you can order retail or sign up for a membership. The key is to use therapeutic grade oil. The stuff u buy at the store is not pure and will not work. Good luck.
