What is Perineal Spray Used For?
Perineal spray is a convenient and hygienic way to treat the discomfort of the perineum. The skin between the genitals and the anus is something most of us don’t think about until it makes us uncomfortable.
Pain and itching to the perineum happen for different reasons, but childbirth is a common cause. After a vaginal delivery, the perineum will pull or tear to the point that it requires stitches.
Perineal spray provides even coverage to the injured perineum with a cooling mist that delivers skin protection and soothing relief.
How Do You Use Perineal Spray?
Spray liberally to the affected area as often as necessary (especially after relieving yourself at the toilet).
The bottle is designed to spray at an angle directly at the skin between the genitals and the anus. Its compact size allows you to take the bottle anywhere!
To remove the spray, rinse with warm water. Contents are under pressure so do not puncture or keep in a hot area.
Contact your doctor if bleeding occurs, your condition worsens or does not improve after 7 days.
Perineal Spray Vs. Dermoplast
Dermoplast (in the “blue can”) is a hospital-grade analgesic spray that is often offered to new moms when they are sent home from the hospital.
Dermoplast is a postpartum numbing spray that delivers strong pain relief for extreme perineal injury. Perineal spray for after birth cares for the other symptoms and works to protect the skin as it heals.
Dermoplast is oriented toward numbing the pain while the perineal spray is formulated for soothing the skin.
Some new moms dislike the numbing sensation from Dermoplast, so they prefer perineal spray.
How Do I Take Care of My Perineum After Birth?
- For pain and swelling: Use ice, Sitz baths, or pain medication.
- Regular pad changes: If you experience post-partum bleeding, change your pads often (every 4-6 hours). Until the area has completely healed, avoid using tampons and douching.
- Underwear: Wear comfortable, breathable, and non-binding underwear.
- Cleaning: Keep the area clean and pat dry. Be cautious with water temperature as the area may be sensitive to hot or very warm water.
- Hands: Avoid handling the wounded area and keep your hands clean.
- Avoid: Don’t use powders, products with perfumes, or lotions on the affected area. Use our additive-free perineum postpartum spray instead.
- Call your doctor: If there is a foul smell or excessive itching, call your doctor.

Bonus Product Tips
Get the most out of your perineal spray purchase! Here are some bonus tips.
Pack it in your hospital bag: Perineum spray is one of the postpartum essentials.
Have two bottles: One to keep by the toilet and one to stay in your bag for on-the-go.
Keep the can in the fridge: Get the effect of a cold compress by keeping the perineal spray in the fridge between uses.
Instant wipes: Spray the perineal spray on toilet tissue or cotton balls to make a soothing personal wipe. For additional cleansing and soothing, try Doctor Butler’s Organic Soothing Wipes.
Wear a pantyliner: This mineral oil jelly based product can leave an oily residue. If you aren’t already wearing feminine hygiene pads, wear a pantyliner to protect your underwear.
Beyond postpartum: While our product is often used as a postpartum spray, it can still be used for irritation “down there” no matter the cause. Moisture sometimes gets trapped in the perineal area during menses between pad changes. This refreshing spray relieves discomfort to the perineum for anyone – new mom or not!
