I used coca butter for mines it eases the itch plus it kinda smooth the scar out a little faster I will be having my second c section tomorrow
Mine took about a month and a half to heal completely. Most of it was healed within a few weeks but I had one stubborn spot that was about an inch long that took awhile. I just kept it dry as I could and washed it with soap and wash cloth a few times a day. I was also prescribed antibiotics but didn't take them in fear of thrush.. im breastfeeding
My son will be a month old Sunday and I am still itching pretty bad around my incision.
Thank u all for your advice. I try to rest and keep it as dry as possible.
Keep it clean and let it get air as often as possible. Don't wear any tight clothing that could irritate until it's fully healed. And just get up and move around as mu cheaper as you can without over doing it. The more your walking around the quicker it gets better.
Ihave had 2 C-Sections already and this is going to be my 3rd. The best thing is to rest and don't lift more than you are supposed to. Always wear your stomach binder and use a hand mirror to look at it once a day to make sure it hasn't opened up. On my 2nd one i opened my incision back up and that will just make the wait longer :-( hang in there it will start to feel better soon
Being itchy means that it is healing and for pain take Tylenol regularly. It takes awhile to heal it's a major surgery.
