Itching like crazy
I'm 22 years old and I had my first pacemaker implanted on december 18, I've had no complications from the surgery. Once the scar had formed I started using Mederma products on it. Mederma advanced during the day and Mederma PM at night. I should also mention I had a loop recorder implanted before and it was removed during the pm surgery so I've got the one scar between my collar bone, breast and shoulder for the pm and one between my sternum and my breast from where the recorder was removed.
Both these scars have been healing nicely. The pm scar was begining to develop into a keloid but thank god it has been regressing into a nice and flat scar. My only problem now is that both of these scars will, on occasion, itch like crazy. I don't have dry skin, it can be a little sensitive but mostly in the bruises-like-a-peach kind of way. I'll try not to scratch because it will get red and bruise a little but sometimes it's just impossible not to.
My scar from when I had the loop recorder implanted didn't itch this much before. Can someone tell me if they've had similar issues with their scars? They started itching around 7 weeks ago and it's still going on.
