Itching C-Sec scar after 6 months - normal??

My scar has always been itchy at times but this week I´ve noticed it much more, it´s itching everyday and is quite uncomfortable. It looks OK still a bit red. Does anyone know if this is to be expected after 6 months? I´m getting a bit paranoid...

BTW I am in Spain so it´s pretty hot here - could that be why?

Thanks in advance

havent had a c-section, but my episiotomy still gets itchy and achy when im tired. i asked my friend if she got this after hers, and she said hers still felt sore when she was poorly, and her babies were born 7 and 5 years ago!
so dont know if thats any help or not.

i hope you don't think i'm being rude, but do you have a bit of an overhang?

if so, it could just be a sweat rash or fungal infection and should respond to canesten or similar.

if you don't then tell me to shut up and bugger off for being so rude to a stranger

That question actually made me laugh out loud - seriously !
Yes I do so you´re probably right. I´d rather it be that than something more sinister!!

...i thought you'd flounced off when you didn't respond earlier...

its worth getting it checked out by your doc though, just in case.
good luck with it.
