A soft cotton T-shirt is recommended to be placed between your skin and the binder to minimize this. If the itching is related to the incision, this may be related to an allergic reaction and the plastic surgeon should be consulted.

Itching Like Crazy Under the Velcro Binder
First, try a cotton t-shirt under the binder, to get the binder material away from the skin.
If that fails, ask your surgeon for a recommendation for an alternative binder (Spanx usually work well), or to abandon the binder completely.
Thanks for your question, best wishes.
Itching under Binder
1) Change the brand of the binder and look for different fabric
2) Agree with Cotton T- Shirt
3) After shower, massage your skin with 100% pure avocado oil or
pure almond oil. Wait few minutes , put on a cotton t-shirt before the binder.
Hope it will make you feel better ....

The answer is simple. Try another binder. There are several companies that make these binders. Many can be purchased at department stores. Also, I agree with the post below regarding wearing a cotton T-shirt.

Itching Under Binder?
Thanks for your question. Some itching is expected with wound healing. If you are itching because the binder is uncomfortable, put on a form fitting, spandex like shirt with the binder above the shirt.

Itching under abdominal binder
Thanks for your question. You may be itching because of either sweating and heat, or being sensitive to the fabric. First try washing the binder in a hypoallergenic detergent, like Seventh Generation. You can also try wearing a cotton undershirt beneath the binder. Good luck.
