Q:

Hi moms..... I had a c section on 19 December its four months now as summers hv started I sometimes feel little itching on my stitches due to sweat.... What can I use then on stitches?



Roopashree Siddireddy

Apply little moisturiser or apply oil over it. As stitches start to heal...it will dry... as it dries.. it will itch. Don't worry... it means.. healing process is going on. Be gentle and don't itch.

Thanks Roopashree.... Do stitches take so long to heal

u can apply olive oil or coconut oil n lightly massage whenever u feel the itch but don't be harsh.it will definitely come down

what all said, dont scratch. keep the area clean and moisturized. keep urself hydrated. and in case if u see anything un usual.. pls visit ur doctor.
