I had a tear during child birth which went undetected (and therefore unstitched and yeah, it could have used stitches, until about 4 days later when I went to get up and the skin opened and I cried like a baby. After trying several things, fresh aloe vera, taken from a leaves I bought at the grocery store, made all the difference in the world. Hope your baby heals quickly! I think I could have shortened my healing by at least a week had I used that first.
