I had my son via c-section 4 months ago due to him being so big. He weighed 11 lbs 13 oz at birth. I am having the absolute worst itching of my life around my incision scar!! And what makes it all worse is I am still completely numb in that area too. Will I ever regain feeling in that spot? Can anyone relate or offer any advice before I rip my skin off?!?!

Try putting lotion on it when it itches , I have had two csections and I still have moments where it itches really bad. The numbness never really goes away, I mean it's hard to explain. I have feeling there but it's not like the rest of my body. I don't like my scar being touched either , like my underwear or pants rubbing or if my husband accidentally touches it I flip!

I am completely the same way with the top post. Had my son a year ago and it itches sometimes but HATE when it's touched. I have some feeling but not a lot. Hard to explain.

Sounds like you get what I get after I have mine it's a yeast infection and your ob can prescribe powder for it to make the itch go away. After you get out of the shower use a blow dyer to dry your cut completely.
