I Had A C Section Is There A Good Cream To Treat The Scar This Was 6months Ago
Not really...but: You could try different scar cream/remedies. I personally do not believe that there is a miracle fix, but I do suggest vitamedmd scar reduction cream. It won't hurt and may help.

I had a c-section 3 months ago. My incision has healed, but the scar itches like crazy every once in a while. What is the best thing to put on it?

If she has fever, pus or redness around the wound or severe abdominal pain (different from her c-sect pain) she should go immediately to the ed. Otherwise, call her OB and get seen very soon. If unable to get seen by ob, then go to the ed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
