    Had a c section a month ago. Had my scar checked last week and doc said it was all good. Today it is itching and I want to scratch it. Of course I won't but just wondered if this was normal? I remember when I had scabs/scars as a child and it itched my mum would say it's getting better -is this true or an old wives tale? Scar looks healthy enough.
    Thanks.

    I think it's caused by the scar slowly shrinking and pulling in more. I'm pretty sure I had it too.
