2 years after big pilonidal surgery. The itch is unbearable suddenly.

Hi there,

Obligatory first time poster, I looked and couldn't find in the forums exactly what I was looking for. Sorry if this is a thread already.

I had my surgery 2 years ago and I believe they removed the pore altogether, they certainly put me under anesthesia for the surgery itself.

Suddenly as of 3 days ago the scar site has become unbelievably itchy. Im wondering if anyone has found relief or experienced this? It feels like no matter how much I scratch it won't go away. I'm trying not to scratch it but it is driving me insane. Could it possibly be coming back? Is this something to expect with scars over time? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading.
