I have stitches and Dermabond where my pilonidal cyst was. It's been 8 days since the surgery with wide excision & ACell. It itches! What should I do?

In brief: Healing

you had a pilonidal cyst removal.
Now 8 days later there is itching. This is healing so try not to scratch the area. You might put bacteria in the incision from your fingers. The itching will stop. Over time it might get easier to divert your mind.
