You should try to avoid any intercourse or penetrating vaginal activity. Try to keep the area clean (but with something like gentle soap and water with limited scrubbing).

Healing scabs: Overall good nutrition is required for proper healing of wounds, but there are not particular foods for a generally healthy person to help them heal wounds/scabs faster. Keeping the area moist with an ointment like petroleum jelly helps, as does not trying to remove scabs faster than they are ready to come off.
