This is a little embarrassing, but I need your help

OK. I got some Nair a little too close to some sensitive areas and I now have a small "chemical burn." Which cream should I put on there?

It doesn't really itch....it just burns. I went ahead and took a benadryl because I figured this is some kind of reaction. I guess I'll be taking a nice little nap this afternoon.
Just found this on another site dealing with a Nair burn. It wasn't dealing with delicate areas though, so proceed with caution!

do you have access to anything with lidocaine in it? it won't heal anything, but it will help with the burning ouchiness. Bikini zone has lidocaine, if you have that!

Google it.....you'll be amazed at some of the stories, and answers

We recently tried using Nair, but some was accidentally put on her labia (in an attempt to remove as much hair as possible) and it started to burn her and the labia got swollen... after applying a cold, soaked towel to it, it got better, but I doubt we'll ever try using Nair again.

There is a proper term for this though....

Firecrotch

The persistent burning of the genital area after applying hair removal cream (see Veet, Nair) and leaving on for too long.

I read some of the same stuff....but not the "firecrotch."

I don't have anything with lidocaine. I went with the neosporin. So much for pain relief.......that **** stung.

Sounds like the cold towel might help. I'd opt for some neosporin and some very loose fitting clothing.

Hope you feel better!!

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.

All healed now, with no scars, but a very painful, and memorable experience

I always used Nair in the "sensetive areas"

Should I count my blessings I haven't got burnt (till now...)

What should I use instead of Nair then. I don't want to wax every 2 weeks. And I can't stand hair other than the one on top of my head. Oh ya +my eyelashes and eyebrows...

I would use cortisone....that should help with any inflammation. If you have any open sores I would keep them moist with Vaseline...you dont want them to scab over.
I hope this isn't too personal, but you might want to wear cotton for a while...

When I got large, severe Nair burns, I put something called clortrimazole on it, over and over, and the burns disappeared fairly quickly...it was a miracle. It is supposed to be for foot fungus, but my pharmacist recommended it for other rashes, too...even excema-type rashes. You can find it right in CVS.

I don't know if you can get this on the inside of your body, though.
This may not be very practical, but you could call your gyno and have her call in a prescription for some hydrocortisone ointment. I have 2.5% hydrocortisone ointment and it works wonders! This is sort of embarassing, but I got REALLY irritated down there last winter and nothing would make it better... vagisil, etc. to the point where I was going to class in sweatpants with no undies! The hydrocortisone cleared it up within a week and I still use it at any sign of irritation.
