Did anyone have 2nd degree or worse tearing? If so, how did you heal? How long did it take? Dr gave me Epifoam, a Peri Bottle and Witch Hazel pads. I put the Epi and A&D ointment on my pads everytime I go to bathroom after squirting w peri bottle and then blotting with tissue and witch hazel pads. I feel like the wounds will never heal. Especially since I can't sit still (it hurts to sit, and I feel pressure when I stand). Showers do seen to make me feel better. DH bought me a Sitz bath today, I think I may try it later but I'm nervous. Do you all have any other tricks for helping to get back to normal down there?
