Anyone got any home remedies for my stitches itching. I was lucky with the fusion they glued my back so no scabbing and itching. When he took my hardware out last week he used stitches. Now it's scabbing and cracking and itching. I can tolerate the cracking and scabbing but the itching is driving me insane. I've got 2 more weeks with these things and can't stand it. Guess it's my own fault I told him not to worry about the tattoo this time I just want to feel better. I know itching is supposed to be a good sign, healing and all, but I've woken up scratching and some blood from the pulling the scabs off. Other then that I'm recovering well.
