    It could be reaction to stitches. I really itched when I started healing. That lasted a while.

    I used Aquaphor. I was really itchy too. It could Br a skin reaction to whatever cream your applying.

      If the rash is bad I would ask your dr. If your using anything like neosporin maybe I broke out in a rash from that different spot but it started with stitches.
