Itchy C-Section Scar!

It just started this past week, and I can't stop scratching my c-section scar! I didn't experience this with my last pregnancy so I'm not sure what is going on.  Anyone else have this happen?

:(  I'm sorry!

That was my biggest complaint about my c-section.  The scar was so, so itchy.  I think it's itchy during the healing process, but another cause for itchy for me is that since it was right at the top of my hair line, when those hairs start trying to grow back in it itches like crazy!

It gets better, but it does take a while to get there.  Sometimes it helps to put lotions on it.  (((HUGS))) and GL!!

Mine didn't really itch but it's taking forever to get feeling back around it. I had a spinal block before the c-section and the scar still has numb parts.
