Ok I have lots of questions I'm in Australia and I don't recognize some of the things listed or know what you used them for, Bromalain, arnica, hibiclen, bacetracin ???
Ok the Bromelain is derived from Pineapple and acts as an anti inflammatory agent.  Some say this helps with swelling after surgery.  Arnica is also something that some claim helps with swelling, pain and acts as an antiseptic.  Hibiclens acts as an antiseptic and cleansing agent.  Then the bacitracin is an antiobiotic ointment.  

I never used any of these items.  I took a healthy dose of a pure vitamin C for weeks prior to surgery.  I then used hydrogen peroxide as a cleansing agent for my incisions.   I like to keep everything clean and dry.  

Women have had success with all of these products; but it's really a personal preference.  Also always ask your doctor before taking or applying anything.  
Thank you for sharing this, it's quite relevant!
Curious what the hydrogen peroxide is for? I have read that it can harm healing skin?

The hydrogen peroxide is a cleansing agent.  When I had my c-section my doctor had me place this on my infected incision.  Doesn't hurt at all.  Always check with your doctor though before placing anything on your incisions.  

My doctor had me clean the area first with hydrogen peroxide..then apply bacetracine ointment. I used for approximatley 1 month after. Then again I had a no drain drain tt so it may be different for others who have drains.
