Brazilian wax redness/ swelling help

Had a Brazilian but for some reason, my fanjo has reacted this time.
Seriously red/swollen and I'm meant to be having a naughty night away on the weekend.

Any advice? Debating Metanium!

I'd try cucumber slices

Good idea. It's very sore

Aloe Vera cream?

Grammarist · 07/11/2019 07:29

The cucumber and aloe helped a bit and I used a shedload of metanium last night but it's still horrendously sore.
Any miracle cures????

I hate to say this to you, but I had this happen with an underarm wax.

The 'beautician' kept going over the same area and what started out a bit red and tender quickly became a nasty full blown skin infection.

I'd savlon up if I were you and be aware you may have to visit the GP if it gets infected.

Oh, and don't get waxed again.
I do my 'area' with an epilator now, much better than dirty, double dipping salons (expensive, respectable looking salons I might add!) and 'beauticians' who don't seem to realise that whacking the strip repeatedly will cause skin damage.

All skin types are different. But to reiterate what has been said, if you are used to being waxed, this really should not happen. I would raise it with the salon.

On a lighter note, it looks as if someone is going to have to kiss it better over the weekend. Wink

GrinGrinGrinyes, I think that'll definitely have to happen. I think the waxing witch stripped my skin. It's not nice

@Grammarist I have been having waxing there for several years. I think the first couple of times there was some redness but never since, and not to the extreme you describe.

It sounds like a combination of you having done as a one off for your weekend away and the beautician doing the same area several times and possible causing some infection. Is she familiar with doing waxing below regularly as I think it really makes a difference with a beautician that is really practiced?

If your Dp though is anything like my husband, ever since I've had it done he has never wanted me to go back to how I was before...loves me being fully waxed and I really prefer it now. Can't imagine being hairy. But I think waxing is better being done routinely as opposed to a one off with potentially a beautician who doesn't do frequently

Hope the weekend went well and it didn't inhibit things too much😉
