just so I could go swimming, what do I do now as its burning and sore.

I wont be going swimming now I guess.

Swimming would cool your poor burny fanjo down, just jump in the pool really quickly so noone sees the red pulsating hairless mess between your legs wink

Heavens. Whatever did you put on it?

LuisSuarezTeeth Fri 23-Aug-13 15:12:04

What did you burn it with confused

Don't go in a salty float tank like my friend did. She'd shaved all her bikini area and legs just before. Now that really stung.

Did you burn it with hot wax?
Sudocrem should soothe it and cool it down a bit.

Longhotsoaks Fri 23-Aug-13 15:16:26

I used a removal cream not sure if I am allowed to say what, but I have put sudacream in the painful area.

LuisSuarezTeeth Fri 23-Aug-13 15:18:37

Ow!

I slid down the white slide in Butlins and nearly tore my right lip clean off as it scrapped between the smooth tiles underwater, on the rough sandy cement bits at super speed. Pain was not the word.

I'd sit in a cool bath for a bit.

Longhotsoaks Fri 23-Aug-13 15:25:10

Im worried its going to hurt may have to have a glass of wine later the thought of getting in a bath is making me shudder.

Longhotsoaks Fri 23-Aug-13 15:25:58

Oh Oh that must of been awful hope you are ok now was there any damage.

tywysogesgymraeg Fri 23-Aug-13 15:26:33

OP - If you can say Sudocreme, you can say the name of the depilatory cream - lol!!

OHforDUCKScake Fri 23-Aug-13 15:26:56

No. I never looked though, I never got round to it.

Hope you heal soon.

OhDUCK that sounds soooo dreadful.

op you must be allergic?

I so feel for you. Years ago when the lacy body type undies were very in vogue and I had a minor experience of what you have. I was going out and was running late. I took the body undies (ones with metal popper fastenings on the under carriage) out of washing machine and put the over the back of a chair in front of the fire to dry while i did my make up... grabbed the undies and dived into them no for a minute thinking the poppers would be hell fire hot.The pain lives with me to this day. I remember my friends laughing til they cried at me sitting side saddle on the pub stools.
You have my sympathy

Let it heal with Aloe Vera and then find yourself a nice waxing lady who will solve all your problems!

Maryz Fri 23-Aug-13 15:33:23

This may cheer you up.

Scroll down and read the reviews.

BuskersCat Fri 23-Aug-13 15:34:28

OH GOD! I've done that before, put Veet all over my fanny, then closed my legs. It got rid of the hair but got some lodged inside! Had to sit legs akimbo on the toilet with a mirror and wet cotton wool to get it out!

Longhotsoaks Fri 23-Aug-13 15:37:52

Thanks it will take my mind of the pain for sure Maryz, thanks Andy I do usually but left it to late so had a go.

Ljl that must of really hurt, I feel your pain.

Having just clicked to this thread from the one with the delightful American 17 year old, I'd just like to say thank you for lightening my mood smile

Oh Maryz you never fail to deliver grin

diamond211 Fri 23-Aug-13 16:08:37

Maryz - I have not laughed so much in ages

WilsonFrickett Fri 23-Aug-13 16:13:55

LJL

OP try some tea tree oil. I'd avoid the pool as the cholorine will sting like a motherlover.

Mia4 Fri 23-Aug-13 16:30:55

Ouch! Try Aloe Vera? Swimming might help but the chlorine might also sting- sounds like you might be sensitive to the cream.
