To reduce the effects of bacteria, antiseptics such as boric acid, phenol and resorcinol can be used, as these provide relief from itching and burning sensation.
Ouch, yes it is normal. Eat high fiber and lots of water (keep your stool soft);Use over the counter creams or get a prescription cream from your doctor (at your 6 week check up). Use baby wipes when you go and don't rub, it will just irritate them. When they act up, sit in a sitz bath (warm, shallow water).Congratulations on your baby :)
Did you have them immediately after having the baby? They never go away, sorry. They will go down and be less swollen though. It sucks, I know. You can use creams and a sitz bath.
