Rash


#1

I used to get a pro wax monthly on my back. I ultimately stopped because I would get a rash that would last 3-4 days after each procedure. Are there techniques to look for in a waxer that would help out with this problem?


#2

Sorry, I didn’t read the “Lowdown on Pro Waxing” before asking the question.

Still, is 3-4 excessive?


#3

Do you mean little red bumps where the hairs were removed, or a hive-like rash?


#4

Mostly the little bumps. Some of them resemble acne like an ingrown hair.


#5

Many people get these after shaving or waxing, especially in sweaty areas like bikint area or armpits. The bumps can also happen from tight clothes or frompressure like leaning against a desk chair or car seat (especially if you’re hot and sweating a little).

One of the most effective options is Tend Skin, which helps the follicles keep unclogged and helps the dead skin get cleared away. This allows the hair and oil in a follicle to escape.

If you do get these bumps, do not pop them. Let the settle on their own. Often a cotton swab with tend Skin or similar products applied directly to the bump will help clear it up faster.
