thanks guys! i figured out what it was. I had read a post where they said to use sanitary napkins as surgical dressing because they were cheaper and felt nice. well apparently im highly allergic to those lol. i was going crazy with the itches im so thankful to have that all gone! i was crying from all the itching pain.

I have always said that those darn pads are the devil.  I hated them when I had to use them after the birth of my son and still don't think much of them today.

I am glad you figured it out before you scratched yourself raw.

I agree with Kimmers! Call, call, call. Itching is the worst!

Oh Goldengirl...what meds are you taking?    You should call your doctor and run this by him.  This feeling happened to me after my c-section and what I found out was that I am allergic to the percocet they had me on. 

The doctor changed up my pain meds and put me on Benadryl for a couple of days and I was fine.  Now make sure you call the doc before you start or stop taking anything.

I hope our Q&A about tummy tuck and itching afterwards may offer some tips.  Best wishes for getting over the itch!
