vaginal tearing and healing remedies?

Ok, so 6 weeks ago I gave birth to my son. My Dr tore me to get him out and stitched me up, I'm mostly healed except for some tenderness, the occassional site bleeding and also kinda burns when I pee (hope this isn't tmi for you!). So what I was going to do was get a sitz bath but is there anything else I can do to help this healing process go any faster? Home remedies? OTC medicine creams or what? Please help!

  • you can take arnica tablets or do the gel...go to an organic store and talk to the person in charge of the organic vitamins ask about it. I got mugged and the tablets and gel really helped the swelling go away and really sped up the healing process, from my cuts
