Sorry to hear about your problem. You are probably suffering from an anal fissure
, which is quite common after delivery and especially forceps delivery during which there is more stretching of the perineal region. These problems are also accentuated because of constipation
, which is a part and parcel of pregnancy
Unfortunately combiflam will not provide you with long lasting relief. You need to do certain things:
- firstly take a high roughage diet (green leafy vegetables, salads, fiber)
- avoid fatty, fried and spicy foods (they will lead to more pain)
- Sitz bath (take a tub and fill it with luke warm water and sit in it for 10 mins twice a day)...this will help in reducing the pain
- Apply xylocaine
jelly 2% at the site where it is hurting after the the sitz bath and before you pass stools. This jelly is absolutely safe during lactation
and has to be applied locally.
- Take a laxative (2 tea spoons at night) if you are constipated. Safe during lactation
If you take these measures, you will get relief from your pain in a couple of days.
Hope you get well soon.
