My episiotomy has been healing very slowly. I'm now 7 weeks PP and I have a layer of granulation tissue on top of the wound. The doc has given me antibiotics as they suspected an infection, and also said I should go to the chemist and get a silver nitrate pen to treat the granulation tissue.
From what I can see online, most people have this treatment done BY the GP, not by themselves at home! I'm really worried I don't know what I'm doing and that I'll cause more damage!
Has anyone done it themself?
