This past week I've had a wicked case of itchy stitches. Everything is healing up fine...I'm just at the stage where I've wanted to claw my cootch off. I had a pretty extensive repair, so that's a lot of stitches....hence, a lot of itching. Anyways, besides keeping up with the peri bottle (which I'd gladly marry, at this point), I started using my Earth Mama Bottom Balm on my perineum and where ever I could feel the sutures. I'm telling you, it's friggin awesome. It totally takes the itch away and has this lovely cooling effect.
Anyways, I thought I'd post about it here. I personally think everyone should buy some and keep it in their fridge just in case they end up with a frankenvag like me. It totally saved my sanity this past week!
