    I have this problem too at the moment with two particular scars. It's driving me mad! Calamine lotion hasn't worked for me, nor has hydrocortisone or any moisturisers etc...

    Sounds more like they coud be infected and need antibiotic cream/tablets. Itching like that is usually a warning of infection in the wound, especially if it is raised also. I would take a trip to the Doctors surgery.
    Love Lea :biggrin:

    Well as far as infection you can have an infection even with scars, sometimes the outside of the wound will heal but kinda infected and not all the way healed underneath. What I do is put Aloe Vera on them, helps a little bit..
