Scars

Post by Glitzy75 on 4th June 2015, 4:10 pm

Hi everyone

I am 2 weeks post breast uplift and reduction. I had my check up with my surgeon today who has said I can start moisturising my scars between showers now. Just wondering what everyone else uses? I have got bio oil and some neutrogena dry skin cream. Used them today and have found my boobs have become really itchy for the first time. Any advice on if that's normal or what else I could use?
Thanks

Any moisturiser will do the trick, but I'm surprised he's said to do it so early. Normally it's more a 6wk timeline before moisturising scars, as they're likely still open and healing. Itchy is normally a good sign on a dry scar, as it means it's healing, but if it's only when you put the cream on, I'd stop. Give it another week maybe and try again. It shouldn't cause any discomfort. Always listen to your body, it'll tell you when it's ready.

I thought that myself but he said it was fine to start now. I think I will leave it for now and just continue to tape them. I have been given the gel strips to wear so will stick with that until my next check up in 3 weeks. Am itching like crazy!

Some recommend taking an over the counter antihistamine to relieve itching also ice packs wrapped in something so as not to get incisions wet can help too.
