Savlon/germolene or similar to discourage any bugs.

A basic red patch will disappear of it's own accord as long as it is not avoiding/treating/preventing infection is hte key IMO.

You could also try those fast healing plaster things which I have silver(I think) in to heal the broken skin part of it?

Well, I find savlon works really well at healing things quicker, you could always dab a bit on concealer on it on the day...

Had one myself but in a rather more intimate area.blush Hair sprang out and was about 2 inches long. Afraid it took quite a while for the redness to go.

Of those the sudocream, you need something antiseptic.

Congrats on getting married btw

I once had one of those, it was tightly curled up like a little fist. left a cavity crater hole which took a long time to heal

try the plasters with the silver, they weren't around when i had mine

How long was it?

Something called Tendskin is miraculous- big branches of Boots do it (I get mine off eBay) and it takes all the redness and swelling down. Give it a google, honestly.

Congrats and try lavender oil for blemish.

Works miracles IME.

PerfectPrefect Tue 07-Jul-09 22:35:18

you could try one of these on your big day if it is still red.

No-one would notice grin

I've never had one, although it must be grim, there must be a very satisfying element to removing it. grin

I always use witch hazel on spots and ingrown hairs

I am pleased more and more are starting to find out about TENDSKIN. As a young dancer in the late 90s, it was to be found in every single kit in the dressing room. Great for ingrown, razor bumps, bruises (safe to use on kids) and even acne scars!

Cheapest to buy from US ebay

Stick one of those little spot plasters over it the flesh coloured ones - a lady at DSs school uses them on her face and they are almost onperceptable so you wouldn't see it on your leg!

I'd try the plasters with silver. Never used them, but in my last pg got a nasty leg ulcer that was treated with normal dressings - no good, just got worse. Then with silver dressings - the whole thing was gone within days, I just have a tiny scar.
