I just delivered my first baby on Weds the 28th. I have second degree tears and I constantly feel like I am reopening them. I have been rinsing off after using the bath room and not just drying myself after wards instead of actually wiping and using whitch hazel pads. I haven't found much if any relief with any of this. The doctor gave me Norco for it but I'm trying to stay away since it's not the best thing to be taking while breast feeding. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a different way to help with the pain or if I could use neosporen (sp) to help it heal faster. ThanksAnswer Question

I was given the Lanocain spray & witch hazel pads. I lined 3 pads on top of my ice pack pads & always used the spray as often as I needed. I also would suggest a sitz bath, as well as stool softeners (in case it still hurts when you go), and either a hemorrhoid pillow or boppy to sit on. I hope you feel better soon!!
