Frenulum: This is an area called the labial frenulum. Traditional wound care is with 2-3 times a day cleansing or after urination/defecation with a sitz bath and/or gentle irrigation and light application of ointment. Small tears may be sensitive but typically heal in 7-10 days. Avoid intercourse during this time. http://www.bodysculptor.com/genital-rejuvenation/labiaplasty/ ...Read more

Natural Healing: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. ...Read more
