I found to cleanse myself the best I had a hand held shower nozzle that I would use. It worked better then the little squirt bottle that the hospital gave me. Plus if you had to get stiches it will just be the healing part.

The healing is what makes it itch. Is the dermoplast working? When it itched/burned like that, I gave it an extra shot of dermoplast and was good to go for a little while. Maybe try an extra blast? Confused

omg i know what ya mean krissy. the itching awful and the clit pain is like serious pressure and it hurts real bad too. it took me 8 weeks to feel normal again after liam. i even took a boppy pillow where ever i went. deroplast helps and the hospital gave me some numbing stuff too.

sorry about your vaj.


have you tried not swabbing his cord? i think i read that the cords that were left alone fell off faster than the ones treated with alcohol.

Jaylons cord fell off Friday morning about 2:00am. I hated the damn thing. I cleaned it and cleaned it and it seemed like it really hurt him (it didn't I'm sure, but...) so, I would wring the alcohol swab out on his cord and then wipe it out. It dried out much faster. I'm glad it is gone though.

Sorry your hoo hoo is broken.

from my own personal experiance, if your stitches are still in you are probably itchy from the stitches and your body healing that area. I hope you feel better soon, I know what you are going through though if your problem is the same as mine was.

i agree with the cord thing. the new thing now is docs say just to leave it alone. it will fall off when its ready i guess. rubbing it with alcohol may just irritate his sensitive body.

ha i told my mom i was just leaving rowans cord because i read that is better. then my mom went behind my back and starting cleaning it off with alcohol. and funny thing is it didn't start to stink until she did that.

anyways. krissy my cookie burnt like mad all the time, especially when i pee'd. i was constantly washing at it with my little spray bottle, which was all that made it better.

We were told by the hospital and his peditrician to clean it with alcohol.
