That could be hair follicles trying to grow back in the skin at the edge of the incision or even in the incision. We do have hair on our backs!

I remember how itchy my scar was and to this day, it itches with an tags on my shirts. I've kept my hair short too as even that makes it itch. The left side of the scar is numb for about 2 inches but the right side has feeling right up the edge of the scar.

But I agree...those back of the neck scars...ITCH!

If any of the bumps seems to fester up like a pimple, check it out with your primary doc....could be an ingrown hair follicle.

Jenny (mine is about 8" long from just above the base of the skull in my hair down to the shoulder blades).

I return to the doctor in a couple of weeks. When there, I'll have it checked out but it sure does itch and I've got a few more growing along the incision. Everything else seems to be healing fine . Thank God!
