Barrier Cream

Hi there everyone,

I have found an electrologist which I am happy with after trying several. However I have extremely sensitive dry skin, and however careful I am in my aftercare I get extreme itchyness after about 2 -3 days which I presume is the healing.

Usually after treatment (on the chin, I’m TS by the way, but have an extremely low level of hair which isn’t visible for two days even without shaving) I apply alot of Aloe Vera which I leave on overnight. All is OK for the first day or so and I keep applying Aloe. However after that my chin gets unbearably itchy and Aloe doesn’t seem to calm it. In fact I think it dries it out even more.

Could anyone advise me how to go about relieve the dry itchyness. I heard that silicone barrier cream might help. Can anyone confirm this?

Thank you in advance for you time <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />


For overnight, you should use Tea Tree Oil. It will speed the healing process. As for the itchyness, you should use a hydrocortisone cream. An Aloe based cortisone cream would be best, but the petrolium based ones will also make the itching go away, in addtion to softening the skin.

I don’t know about this barrier cream off the top of my head.

Thank you for your speedy reply James, I appreciate your help.

Anyone else heard of the silicone barrier cream by the way?
