In brief: Yes

Check w/ your treating physician first but there are various "anti-itching" creams that are available usually by prescription only.
These can be very helpful.Best used once your surgical incision is healed though....

In brief: Itchy

That depends on when your surgery took place.
If it was recent only your surgeon should advise you. If the skin is well healed , speak to him/her about what to use
