Mild discomfort, lumps after episiotomy vaginal delivery. Remedy?

Hi I have had 2 children via episiotomy vaginal deliveries. I have had some mild discomfort after delivering my second child 8 months ago. I have been to my GP twice and she said it will be scar tissue healing . However after self examining myself I have noticed a few lumps around and just inside the vaginal opening. I have no other symptoms apart from mild discomfort and my periods are regular.

Hello and welcome to HCM,     
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.
It seems that you may be having a keloid formation at the site of episiotomy. There may be a feeling of stretching for a few days. Keloid is excess scar tissue. But it is painless. If you are having pain then it may be a nerve trapping or nerve damage that may occur sometimes or infection.

If there is no pain then local soothing creams like betamethasone ointment may be applied once a day [ only outside the vagina] for 7 days.

Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
