Detailed Answer:
Hi ,
Thank you for reaching out at Ask A Doctor
I have read your query and understood your concern
Usually episiotomy takes about 2 weeks to heal, An ice pack would help relieve the swelling and pain. Sitz bath may ease soreness and speed healing. You could use medicated creams ,OTC painkillers and numbing spray to help the pain. Avoid laxatives, which you could take only incase of constipation, I would recommend high fiber diet and sufficient water intake to prevent constipation.
