How to treat a wound dehiscence post episiotomy?

I had my baby a month ago, and I had a episiotomy. Last week I noticed that it opened back up. I don t really have time to go to the ob department because I ve already started working and my dr. doesn t feel comfortable stitching me with out ob having a look. What can I use to make it heal naturally with out being restitched. (The cut is the size of a dime)
