Suggest treatment for itchy skin with pimple-like spots caused by C-section

Hi I recently had a hysterectomy and now have a 2 different c section scar one from child birth and one from op which became infected I went to the doctor and got antibiotics and it cleared up but I m now having more issue s what started first was my skin peeling around the scars and has now spread lower down but my skin has became dry and cracked and very itchy and pimple like spots.. I used thrush cream and it didn t seem to help at all and I m a little confused to what it could be and would be grateful for some advice.. Thank you

It is normal to experience itching during the healing process. If you have both itching and numbness, it is possible to hurt yourself from scratching so you should be very careful.

If you still have itching after your pubic hair grows back, it may simply be from healing. You can use Calamine lotion for local applications.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
