I'm three weeks post C-section and my surgery site is really itchy. Could there be something wrong or is it just healing?

If you take a look at your scar and if it’s oozing or like gunky or if it smells, then that could be a sign of infection. When it was so hot recently I had no idea my incision was gross until looking at it. Luckily the antibiotics have started to kick in.

It could also be that you’ve done too much. My scar hurts or feels irritated when I have done too much the day before or that day.

Hope I’ve helped. When in doubt, just contact your GP. Recovering from a csection is hard enough without the scar then getting infected. Hope you feel better soon!
