Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know that amoxicillin is an antibiotic and all antibiotics are including hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label). You should not use this type of drug before checking directly to the doctor and you should not buy it without a prescription from a doctor. Therefore you should not consume amoxicillin carelessly.
Generally perineal sutures will dry themselves within 5-7 days if there are no complications such as infection or loose stitches. If after a week the stitches still bleed and even become swollen, maybe there really is an infection in your stitches. In this condition, you should check with your obstetrician again so that you can further evaluate the cause of your stitches still swelling and bleeding. If you really need therapy with antibiotics, your doctor will prescribe it for you.
Some things you can do right now:
Keep your perineum clean, clean the area with warm water after you have defecated and defecated. Dry your perineal area well before you use your underwear again
Change your pads as often as possible, every 3-4 hours, or if there is still a lot of localized fluid coming out, replace it more often.
Do a sitz bath or soak your perineum area with warm water for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times a day (do not use other ingredients, only warm water)
Avoid sexual intercourse until after your postpartum period, and do not wash and soak your vagina using soap, chemicals, or certain traditional ingredients
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
