Thanks girls... I'm back to sitz baths as often as I can, but with DH away so,often it's really once a day. TMI but my pp bleeding is done with so I've been wearing loose jogging pants around the house with no undies. My midwife said to get the air at it as much as possible. I'm blow drying and using the peri bottle often as well. All of this is helping me feel better-- there is less burning and pain already.
I'm really hoping the skin around the stitches heals between now and the sixth, enough that it doesn't hurt so much to have them touched. My doctor told me to get some Emla cream to apply to the area before she takes them out but touching them is horrifying!
Anyhow in feeling less upset, if nothing else, and that is worth a lot as well!
