I had a medpor chin implant surgery 2 years ago, with 2 screws in place to fix the implant. Since one month I began noticing itching sensation deep below the skin at the site of one of the screws, and it is increasing in intensity and duration. The itching lasts for a few minutes and occurs on and off every few days. Other than that I dont have any regular signs of infection like swelling, fever or redness. Could this itching also be a sign of infection? -Stu, Longmont CO
