Itching post surgery

I am scheduled to have a breast reduction in a few months. It is something that I've been trying to avoid, but my proportions are so far off that it is causing significant back problems.

I have just begun to use homeopathic medicines recently as part of an overall plan to be as healthy as possible prior to the surgery. My plastic surgeon is supportive of my desire to use homeopathic remedies, but is not familiar enough with them to recommend anything.

I plan on using Arnica Montana for general pain/bruising, but my bigger concern is itching. I have sensitive skin that tends toward itchiness anyway, so the combination of incisions healing and surgical garments sounds like torture. Nothing will be able to be applied topically for a while because of the bandaging. Do you have any recommendations for the prevention/treatment of post-surgery itching? Any other suggestions for healing are welcome as well.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Homoeopathic philosophy has no real provision for prevention of symptoms. Our entire system of medicine is based around matching the individual symptoms of the patient to those in found in a specific remedy. In order to do this, you have to be displaying those symptoms. Human beings are so individual that it is very difficult to predict how any person will react to a particular traumatic event.

Our medicines don't tend to work very well when applied in a 'this for that' manner. The peculiar way in which someone reacts is really our only guide to remedy selection.
