My C section scar is red and itchy I had

Patient: My C section scar is red and itchy. I had my baby 3 moths ago. How do I know if it’s yeast infection or just dryness? How don’t treat it?

 

 

Symptoms: Itchy c section scar

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It looks like a dryness and an inflamed scar. It is worthwhile to consult your doctor for an examination than getting it treated with over the counter medicationsIf left untreated, it can lead to secondary scar infection.Kindly avoid nylon garments, wear only cotton clothes.Hope this helped.Regards
