    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.

    Its a really good sign that its itchy.. it is a sign of healing and that the nerves in the skin are repairing themselves.. :)

    If its really bothering you, put some e45 cream on them, or arnica which will help with the healing process if the scar has completely healed :)
