Yesterday I had a couple of small skin pieces removed to check for dysplatic cells. Today the wounds are SO ITCHY! I can't put hydrocortizone on them. Anyone have any thoughts? I've refrained from scratching so far but it's so hard! The doctor was sympathetic but basically just said "Sorry, it'll quit as it heals." I cannot cover them as I am allergic to adhesives so no bandaids or tape etc. HELP! It is driving me nuts!

My husband just had to have a small skin cancer removed and the doc told him to put vaseline on it to promote healing, keep it moist, and prevent drying and itching. Seems to be working as the wound is healing very well. Hope yours feels better soon!

Our dermatologist recommended getting vitamin E capsules, poking a pin hole in them, and using the liquid you squeeze out. Doesn't take much and seems to work quite well. It absorbs quick and doesn't leave things sticky.
