I am sorry you have scars over your body.

you should see a dermatologist regularly.

sometimes itchy scars can be helped with moisturizing creams and steroid creams

you can also try Mederma anti scar creams and vitamin E oils on your skin to see if that helps your scars.

lidocaine and skin numbing creams can sometimes help decrease itchiness from scars

GoldBond makes a 4% over the counter lidocaine cream which can help

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
