Brief Answer:
sitz bath, oral pain killer, topical antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

A sitz bath with warm (not hot) water and epsom or table salt, 2 to 3 times a day for 15 to 20 mins, would help ease discomfort and help with healing.

In addition, applying a mild topical antibiotic to the area may also help eg neosporin or fucindin. This can be used along with topical lidocaine if needed (if there is significant discomfort

An oral anti inflammatory pain medication may also speed up healing. eg naproxen, cataflam or ibruprofen

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
