Yes, I know that itchiness is normal around an incision. However, this is more around the dressing, where the tape is holding the dressing in place. It is driving me batty!
It is to the point where I have taken the dressing off for a short break. The incision itself is covered with a light gauze, and is not itchy. I can tell that the incision area is swollen, but not infected; not red, oozing, or any other sign of infection. But OMG does it itch where the tape is. I have used several types of surgical tape and gauze, so I can't pinpoint it to a particular tape or gauze.
Can anyone offer any suggestion as to why this may be occuring??
