Cross-posting in homebirth...DS3 was born 3.5 weeks ago. I had a first degree tear that we left unstitched. It seemed like it was healing fine but about a a week ago everything down there started feeling really irritated and sore. There's a lot of redness, more on the side where the tear is/was. This happened after DS1 was born too, with a 2nd degree tear that was stitched and took 10 weeks to stop feeling so irritated. I don't think anything is actually infected as the midwife did a culture when this happened last time and there was no infection. I've never had a yeast infection. Any ideas why things feel so irritated and what I can do about it?
