Post-op itching (BAHA site)
« on: August 21, 2010, 10:21:25 am »
I attended a Cochlear Coffee Talk a few months ago and the topic of BAHA sites itching during the healing process came up.

I was told that patients should use polysporin or Aquaphor for the best relief.

Since intense itching was something I experienced when my site was healing, I thought I should pass along this suggestion.

Hope it helps at least a few BAHA patients,

Retrosig 5/31/07 Drs. Battista & Kazan (Hinsdale, Illinois)
Left AN 3.0 cm (1.5 cm @ diagnosis 6 wks prior) SSD. BAHA implant 3/4/08 (Dr. Battista) Divino 6/4/08  BP100 4/2010 BAHA 5 8/2015

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways
