Did your back itch after your Epi?

My back itched like MAD for many months after my Epi - I was told it was a reaction to the meds.

  • I have a lot of itching - years later - from my epi, it's not from the meds it's from the scar tissue, which tends to cause dry skin.

  • No - I never had any issues after my epidurals, I had 3.

  • My C-incision and stretch marks still itch from time-to-time, too. You are so right about the scar tissue.
