When I was a child, I had surgery on my chest, and there is an approximately 4 inch scar running down my chest. The thing is, I absolutely cannot stand to be touched on the scar. In fact, there were times during m childhood and even teenage years when my chest would turn brown around the scar because I wasn't washing the area thoroughly. It was just so unpleasant to touch. Even now I can't even rub my fingers in the area, but I use my palm to wash it.
When I am touched on the scar, my body reacts by pulling away. It doesn't hurt, or tickle, and I don't even know how to describe it. Its just an EXTREMELY unpleasant feeling.
Is this normal? Is there something I can do about it?
Is it perhaps mental?
