Why does my scar pain on touching it?
Q: I am a 28 years old male. Last year I was operated for Hernia on the right side. For the last 15 days, I am experiencing severe pain on the scar tissue (the operation cut). My abdomen also pains when I touch the scar. What can this be due to?
A:Your skin has become a little sensitive. This is an aberrant behaviour of scar tissue, and it is probably best to tolerate this for a few months. If you have no benefit, consult a skin specialist. Skin specialists often have some creams that can help. The only other treatment, I think, is surgical excision of the scar, but this will not give guaranteed results. Therefore, overall you should tolerate this discomfort for a few more months.
