Itching Associated with Breast Augmentation

Itching is one of the most common side effects experienced after breast augmentation in CT which can be quite inconvenient and frustrating especially when in public. However, itching is a good sign as the reason behind itching of the breast is the healing process. As tissues that have been affected by surgery start their natural reconstruction and healing process, it will make them itchy. It is important to avoid scratching breasts since that can cause damage. For most women, the itching will start after one week of the surgery and it may continue even after 4 weeks.

Besides the healing process, itching can also be a result of an allergy. Allergy can be a result of antibiotics or any of the other medication given after breast augmentation.  Allergy itch may come with a flush or a rash on the skin while the healing itch takes place around the area of surgery. If itching takes place within 30 minutes after taking medication, it may be an allergy effect. It is better to talk to a doctor, so that proper adjustments can be made to the medication.

Another reason why breast augmentation may itch is alcohol consumption. Alcohol can be taken directly through consuming an alcoholic beverage or through taking medication that has alcohol like cold medication or cough syrup. The medication reacts with the body at the area of breast augmentation.

Itching may also be a result of the post-surgical bra. Other reasons could be heat rashes, mild fungal rashes, pain medication, and dressing and prep solution used before the surgery.

If itching is a result of the healing process that takes place after breast augmentation, it should not be a concern. However, it is important to remember that itching should not be scratched since it can cause infection or even damage the tissues that are still recovering. To keep this type of itching down, wash the area of recovery using warm water and pressing gently using fingers. Also, cool air from the hair drier and anti itching cream can be used too.
