    I use the lotion called Eucerin. It’s wonderful. Took care of the itching and reall moisture’s the leg. Hope that helps.

    Hi, I use vitamin E oil at home. If I get that feeling while I'm out I use whatever lotion I have in with me. I think it's the rubbing the oil on that is actually helping, Just make sure the scar site is fully healed before using anything directly on it.

    I got bad itchiness too on my knee. I scratched it very lightly over my clothes. It did help. I still get it now but not as much and can really scratch all around the scar. What a relief!

    Voltaren Gel (RX in the US) is the second best topical anti-inflammatory on the planet.  Use it multiple times a day but especially 15 minutes before bedtime.  Wonderful product.
