Skin Irritation After Tummy Tuck

It's been more than 9 months since I had a full Tummy Tuck. However, I'm currently experiencing a chroninc skin irritation around the scar on the abdomen, especially after showering at night. Is this normal?

Without more information and an examination it is very difficult to answer your question. You should see your surgeon and discuss the situation with him or her. Good luck.
