Ouch! Hi simple one, Welcome to the healthboards! Wonderful place!
Sounds so painful! I hope this helps some, mostly time will heal this. Keep clean & dry. I think get a new spray or stream bottle. Put 1 part iodine/ povidone wash to 10 parts water. About 11 ounces total. After you use bathroom, squirt or spray from top where skin missing letting it flow down to bottom with gravity while sitting on toilet. Blot dry again from area you want clean to dirtiest part. Do this everytime. Neomycin ointment is
controversial about whether it aids or slows healing, so ive read. Wear cotton panties or none under dresses or gowns when in privacy of own home. Iodine/ povidone, betadine is good for killing gram negative bacteria that live in perineal & rectal areas. I wouldnt scrub with washcloth. But, in tub make sure you wash gently & well from top hurt area to the bottom. Blot dry with clean towel or cloth each time. Some brands of triple antibiotic creams & in the store area by vag yeast medicine you can find tubes of cream that have numbing agents. But, might keep to wet. I would
go to dr if not getting better day by day. Hope this helps you. Thank you, gmak
p.s. only if you are not allergic to shellfish or iodine!
