Sala, if you continue to have severe burning, check to make sure you don't have a UTI. That can burn as well. I ignored my symptoms and chalked them up to post-childbirth and the episiotomy. Three weeks post partum I was in the hospital with a kidney infection.

Try zink oxide ,reapply after each trip to the bathroom. (zink oxide is for diaper rash so it safe for you and baby).

The other 2 were a lot smaller. My first had a 43cm head circumference!!!! My 2nd was only 34cm and my 3rd was 36cm. After my 1st was born the midwife turned to me and said I was never going to get that out on my own.

My son was also vacuumed,thats when the doctors came running in made a quick cut to pull him out. I know that feeling of when they pull/rip the baby out. Was that different to the other births? I must say,beside the burning when i needed the bathroom I didnt have much pain while healing..thankfully!

I tore all the way around when they ripped him out of me. He was vacuumed and was very distressed so with 1 contraction they put the suction cup on and then the next the doctor put both feet on the bed and pulled. My (now ex) FIL heard the exact moment he was born because I screamed.
I didn't even have a graze with my 2nd and had about 5 stitches with my 3rd. Even with my 3rd I tore naturally and it wasn't painful when it happened. I have never been cut so I don't know the difference. I'm not having anymore children so I don't intend to find out either!!!!
ETA: I think a sitz bath could be a salt bath. We had a 3 legged bath ( at sitting height) at the hospital and a big tub of salt to add to it with warm water.

What is a sitz bath? Sitz in a German means sit. But i havent heard of a sitz bath. I got cut without them numbing the place befor..my husband says he can still hear that one scream i let off when they used the scalpel to do "a quick slice". It had to go quick..but i have heard its more painful when you tear naturaly?Anybody expirienced both ways?

I know Shawnn, wasn't fun at all. I'm surprised I had any more after him. He had a huge head.

holy cow, Michelle, 37!?!?! Wow! I thought my 6 were bad!

Sala, sitz baths, or a warm water wash as I urinated were the easiest and most effective for me. Good luck!

Witch hazel pads, water bottle, ice pack,and sitz bath. Use the water bottle with warm water to squirt water as you go. Witch hazel pads can be placed on a sanitary pad and changed every time you use the bathroom. Ice as you need to and sitz bath w warm water for 5 minutes also helps. Hope you feel better!

Did they give you a sitz bath? If not, get one and it will really help. But if you are concerned that there is a problem see your doctor.

I found the best relief was a sanitary pad with a bit of water dribbled onto it and kept in the freezer. That was the best relief, it also numbed the area a bit so it didn't sting as much when I went to the toilet.
I had 37 stitches with my 1st so I know it bloody hurts!!!!

Do you have one of those water bottles that you can squeeze?I got one of those from the hospital and i used it everytime i had to go pee. It still burned alittle,but the water helped alot.

Only time will help it heal. Keep using the spray, that's what keeps it from getting infected, but you have a wound. It will sting for a few days, maybe a week. I'm assuming the stitch is being checked by a nurse or doctor?
