Hi everyone, i m a fairly hairy dude an i decided to try using an epilator Friday night on my arms. Without knowing anything, i just started away and did my arms. There was a little bleeding in certain areas, but i thought that was probably to be expected. Everything looked great and i was really happy with the results.
The next morning, i woke up and much to my dismay there were red blotches everywhere that there was bleeding, mainly the elbow area, but on the top of the arm where the skin seemed to be quite sensitive.
By the afternoon, those blotches had turned to numerous red bumps with scattered whiteheads.
It has now been about 36 hours and my upper arm elbow area is still covered in red bumps and whiteheads and is quite sensative to the touch.
Im not really sure wat to do, ive been wearing longsleves because of the embarrassment ill feel if anyone sees me like this.
is there anything i can do?
oh btw, i went into this knowing nothing and as a result i used the epilator without any kind of skin prep then went into the shower directly afterwards.
