A member asked:

I am three weeks postpartum and had second degree tearing, i have some redness in my perineum and anus area it's a bit sore as well. is this normal?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: It's normal for the area to be red, but if it's red and warm and swollen, that could be a sign of infection. If you are at ALL worried, no harm in getting it looked at by ob/gyn or family doctor. Better sometimes, to be safe, and make sure there's no infection.
