I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..

Mine were a little itchy, but the best I could do is lightly scratch AROUND it.. it helped a little bit, not much. It's healing. Good luck, I.

Hope.

It gets better for you..

I had the same thing and after 3 weeks finally found a tube of cortisone cream in the medicine cabinet, put it on 4-6 times a day and the incisions finally stopped itching. It was sooooo bad I wanted to scratch the skin off me! I wondered if it was an allergic reaction to the surgical glue the surgeon used instead of external stitches or maybe the internal stitches - some of which came to the surface and I gently pulled them out... never did really figure it out. Before the cortisone cream nothing worked, vit e,.

Benadryl.

Or my allergy pills either.....

I feel for you! Call your doc if it won't resolve...

I used and still use a lotion by.

Eucerin.

Called calming creme. It seemed to help with my itching and incredibly dry skin post op. I am allergic to most cortisone creams.. so it helped me greatly. If you just have some spots and not like your entire body,.

Hydrocortisone.

Cream or topical.

Benadryl.

Cream that you can get anywhere would be your best bet...

Ah, yes the itching! I am 11 days out and the itching is driving me crazy! I have a nice raised area around all of my incisions also! Plan on using cortisone on them if I can find it in my crazy med cabinet! I'm allergic to.

Benadryl.

So no help there! My.

Hysterectomy.

Scar itched like that too and still does to this day so I figured maybe some people just have that kind of skin and are going to be prone to more itching! I will try a couple of things and see what helps!..

Hey Girl,.

I had the same problem, right around my incisions, they are healing but I found out I was allergic to those little sticky strips they place over your incisions. I'm a little over a year out and let me tell you, I felt like I was going to cry over the itching because I couldn't itch it for fear of opening an incision..

If you can, call your surgeon and see if they can take the strips off if that's what it it and maybe if needed, replace the strips with that glue stuff they use. I wasn't allergic to the glue, just the strips, even the ones they placed on my arms or hands to hold the IV's in. OUCH!..
