Burnt genital skin with Nair
Posted on: 10/07/2010
I have burnt my genitals with Nair hair removal. What should I do?
You have probably gotten an irritant reaction from the Nair. A hydrocortisone ointment can help soothe the area. You can also apply cool compresses. Just make sure you don't start applying lots of different creams and lotions, because once the skin is irritated, it will take a lot less to irritate it a second time, so limit the treatment to one to two things only. If this doesn't help, you may need to see your doctor. Good luck!
