I don't have a C section scar, but do have a large one on my back which can get itchy. I find regularly using Bio Oil really helps. Ask the Pharmacist in Boots, they might suggest something good.

I know how you feel. I'm only 17 weeks with no2 but my scar has been driving me nuts for a while now. It's a difficult place to scratch inconspicuously too! I've found just trying to keep it moisturised has helped a bit - I've been keeping E45 in the fridge and using that and it does soothe it. HTH wink
