Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

First of all, a vaginal tear cannot be self treated. The tear may have to be sutured and treatment along with that procedure will include antibiotic coverage.

If that particular doctor seems to be ignoring it, please visit another gynecologist who will accurately diagnose the tear (if present)=

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
