Why Do Surgical Scars Itch?

Answer

Surgical scars will usually itch because the nerve endings around the cut are being triggered as it heals. The severity of the itch will vary depending on factors such as the person, location of the scar and severity of the cut. However, regardless of how much a scar itches you should not scratch it, and since the sensation is beneath the skin treatment can be difficult.
