Found itchy and painful lump at the episiotomy scar. Should I be worried?
Thanks for your query.
Lump at the Episiotomy scar can be due to:
2. Hypertrophied scar
Based on the symptoms as mentioned in your post, Keloid seems to be a possibility.
As they have tendency to recur and also associated with itching & little pain.
1. Application of topical steroid
2. Administration of intra-lesional steroid injection
So, it will be better to consult a Dermatologist & discuss about the treatment modalities.
There is nothing to worry, you will be fine.
Wishing you a Good Health.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
