I kept a waterbottle in the bathroom and filled it with warm water every time I had to use the toilet. I would just squirt water down there and it takes away the burning sensation. It helps A LOT! Stiches are NO fun :O

Baths are ok,but you'll find the water turns things gluggy and pruney --- not that good for an area that needs to dry out to heal. For the first few days you can use frozen condoms filled with a lil bit of water. Just sit it in between your whooha and your pad- it works to relieve discomfort. But seriously, you wont feel them after a day or so! If they're sore when you go to do poos, hold a cleanpad over the area to give yourself a bit of support. Stops u feeling like your insides are going to drop out!
Sorry for the TMI!

I had quite a few stitches and still to this day have discomfort where I had torn, and that was almost 8 months ago! To relieve the pain I used witch hazel pads, soaked a diaper, opened it up and froze it and sat on it, and kept a water bottle in the bathroom and squirted in while I pee'd. The hospital also gave me some ''Dermoplast" Pain Relieving Spray, it worked wonders and I ended up using two bottles!
