i underwent csec 6 months back. after a month, i underwent another surgery which was removal of hematoma from my abdomen. i had developed this hematoma after csec only. the stitches of second surgery were not disolvable but were safely cut.

now after 5 months of second surgery also, my stitches hurt sometimes. there is itching and irritation. as we know the stitch is a small cut but the skin around it irritates too. as if being stretched like it was during csec. any suggestions.

p.s. its my first baby

As advised by Dr Nihil Datar, Gynaecologist.

Akanksha such questions are tricky and you should consult a doctor. it needs expert advise after examination.

generally I wanted to know what to do if stitches irritate. nothing in detail

As per Advised by our gynecologist expert Dr Nikhil Datar-
Honestly one shld see the area of the skin and understand what is the problem. As a temporary measure any anti pruritis medicine can be taken. Such as cetrizine
