I am now 18 days post op for hip replacement. I had the dressing removed 4 days ago. The scar is healing well and all is going well but the itching around the scar is driving me mad. Any advice would be welcome. How long does this itching last and is there anything to use that would ease it. I do have some bio oil and moisturiser but when is it ok to start using it?
