Hello there,

I’m in a fair bit of pain with my incision! I was wondering if anyone has used spritz for bits on their incision as soon as 8 days post section?

Thanks so much xx

Could you call your community midwife and ask for their opinion? I didn’t have any pain in my scar/incision at day 8, and although everyone is different I think the midwives might want to give you the once over to check you’re healing okay etc xx

I always dabbed it with cotton balls soaked in diluted pure tea tree oil, worked a treat and healed lovely. I’d definitely speak to your midwife if you’re still in a fair bit of pain though.

I didn’t use anything on my incision. Just kept it clean, patted dry. I’d just be concerned about spraying anything on, if it could irritate or introduce infection.

I remember being visibly bruised (particularly after 2nd caesarean) but it all healed ok.

Do call your midwife if you have any worries.

Watch out for redness around the incision and heat.

Hope you’re ok xx
