Errm... Do you have net curtains?

Loobylou123 Fri 23-Aug-13 17:04:46 your post and instantly squealed and clenched! Ouch!!!

I burnt my lady parts and armpits once, cool flannel made it look and feel a bit better! smile

Oh god I did that once years ago with nair/veet, it was absolutely burnt and blistered. You poor thing, I remember the pain (mine was just before my long distance boyfriend came down, talk about crap timing)

You're brave putting sudocrem on it, that stuff stings! I would have put bepanthen on it, that never stings. Forget about swimming, you don't want a tight swimming cossie against your burnt bits. confused

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

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

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

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.

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!

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

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

OhDUCK that sounds soooo dreadful.

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

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

Hope you heal soon.

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

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

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

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.

ShatnersBassoon Fri 23-Aug-13 15:24:01

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

OHforDUCKScake Fri 23-Aug-13 15:18:52

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

Runningchick123 Fri 23-Aug-13 15:15:04

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

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.
