Episiotomy is one of the most commonly performed procedure in obstetrics. Post natal complications were more common among women Who had episiotomy compared to those who did not have episiotomy hence postpartum care for episiotomy wound should begin as soon as possible, so the present study work has been done on episiotomy wound healing. Basically, two things, shodhana (cleaning the wound) and ropana (Closure of the wound), are desirable for proper healing. Many drugs have been described in classics for healing, but none of them is capable of healing the wound individually. Hence, to fulfill the aim, Haridra and Kumari sadhit ghrit was prepared and evaluated clinically its healing properties on episiotomy wounds in this study. It was used topically on Episiotomy wounds. Out of 50 patients, 25 patients in, group B were treated with “Haridra and Kumari sadhit ghrit” (trial group), while 25 patients in group A (Control group) treated with Soframycin ointment with oral antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drugs. Better result was observed in the trial group in comparison to the control group. No adverse effect was observed in any patient.
