Hair removal cream reaction

(4 Posts)

I used a hair removal cream spray on my back a few weeks ago, but I used it twice in the space of 24 hours like an idiot as there were patches that hadn't quite worked.

I had a terrible reaction, probably due to using it twice, and came out in spots all over my entire back.

It has been 3 weeks now, and the spots are still there although definitely starting to fade.

I am getting concerned as I am going to a wedding in 2 weeks that I have bought a dress for, that shows my shoulders and top of back 

Can anyone recommend anything that might get rid of the spots a bit faster?

It sounds like you have a chemical burn. Ask a pharmacist if there is something for burns or scarring that could help. I'm not sure if aloe vera or vit e oil/cream may help.

I would suggest hydrocortisone cream but check with a pharmacist.
