Caesarean Section Scars Sore During Pregnancy?
This second pregnancy is now at the age of 19weeks but why does the stitches from the first child’s cesarean section sting? the age gap of my first child is 1 year 4 months
Hello Nisa, Thank you for the question.
Anyone can experience pain / discomfort / stinging that appears on the surgical scar and this is a normal condition. When someone has surgery, the doctor will make an incision in the skin. This incision in the skin causes damage to the nerve endings located in the skin. Damage to the nerve endings is what triggers the pain / burning. In addition to nerve damage, the formation of scar tissue on the skin can also cause compression and irritation of these skin nerve endings. In general, this stinging will disappear, will not cause annoying complaints, and do not require special medical treatment. However, if the pain gets worse or the surgery scar looks red, please consult your doctor for further examination and treatment.
Hope this information is useful for you.
