I had previously read your other concerns regarding post-op discomfort and I should have mentioned to you in the other thread that the itching sensation can occur at this point in time.
It's a good sign of healing and one of the post-op side-effects. I agree to not scratch at the area but rather okay to lightly rub over it without using any finger nails.
You can ask your doc but simply using a quality topical lotion rich with aloe vera can help the itching. Any dermatologist can also offer some ideas on some over-the-counter products to alleviate the itching and also help with the flaking of the epidermis.
