Hi everyone...I just came across this list from a Google search I did while trying to find information about hives and melanoma scars. What a great list; I only wish I'd found this sooner. In December I celebrated 3 years cancer free! :-) But, during this whole time I've had frequent hives right around the scar where the cancer was removed. Of all my doctors, only one ventured a guess at what it was...she suggested it was irritation caused by internal stitches that had not yet dissolved. She said the longest those stitches would last would be three years. Has anyone else had hives on or around a scar?
