Itchiness at the incision site is usually associated with healing but, if you remain concerned about it, call your surgeon and let him/her know what your symptoms are and how the incision looks. If the incision is getting redder, if you see pus at the incision site, if you are having increased pain or if you develop a fever, then you need to call your surgeon immediately or go to the hospital ER.

As long as the area is not red or swollen it is OK. Do niot scratch it. Keep it clean and can apply a little OTC cortsone cream for the itch.
