Perineal wound characteristics were assessed and observed using the Southampton instrument with the results of the instrument trial r = 0.99 (Karl Pearson correlation coefficient), and the reliability value of 0.99 (brown spearman). The results of this study showed that degeneration of wounds was found only until the first day of post-intervention (1.95 ± 0.22), poor wound regeneration occurred until the second day of pre-intervention (1.95 ± 0.22), and wound regeneration was being encountered changes from the first day to the second day pre-intervention (1.05 ± 0.22). These results indicate that infrared therapy does not show significant changes if only done for one day.
