Bumps on face after waxing

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on face after waxing


Avatar f tn Hi I had my face waxed two months ago and since than I have pimples/bumps on my face I cant get rid of. What should I do please help.
Avatar f tn However, would I have an outbreak of folliculitis if I waved my eyebrows and upper lip area? I use an at-home waxing kit, and only on my face. I just don't want to wax these sensitive areas and then have red pimple like bumps all over my face. Cheers & thanks for any insights.
Avatar f tn You might want to try an after waxing antibacterial formula? I'm not sure I would use soap though, it is pretty drying on your skin.
Avatar f tn i had my 1st face wax about 2 weeks ago first i had nothing and my skin was doing just fine after a week i started getting a severe rash on my cheeks my chin and my neck and as the days pass the rash is spreading causing my skin skin to rise like pimples i have a slight pain in these bumps too !! i have a fair skin n all over my face i hav started having a brown spots on my face which eventually after 2 , 3 days become red and then finally rose up the skin ike bumps or pimples !!
Avatar n tn I was told yesterday after I had an allergic reaction to eyebrow waxing that it wasn't the wax but the medicated cooling jell that was put on my skin after the waxing was done, apparently my salon had this happen a couple of days prior and they narrowed it down to the cooling jell as being the cause. This wasn't communicated to all of the staff so I got to experience the allergic reaction. Hope it's gone soon... I used Benadryl cream and now am using Neosporin. Looking a little better.
Avatar n tn I got these bumps on my lips, down there. They showed up about 3 weeks ago when all my hair started growing back in from my previous waxing. I thought they were ingrown hairs so i waited for them to come to a head. Well they havent. I tryed popping them, they feel just like a pimple. some puss and blood came out but no hair. There deep just in the lip, just like a deep pimple on the face. there are 2 big ones and now all my hair is grown in.
309783 tn?1271961829 I also wonder if it isn't connected to the Herpes virus b/c I sometimes have matching bumps on either side of my face, (how lovely!!) which leads me to believe the bumps may follow a nerve path along my face. We will find the answer and we will be free of this beast! I agree drinking lots of water - not with food. Why not with food is because, I wonder also if it isn't a digestion issue. Since we are all in our late 30's or early 40's and sufficient digestion starts to lessen at this time.
Avatar n tn because it is possible to get razor bumps like you can get on your legs. It is also possible to get in-grown hairs. Other than that, I would have to say ask a Dr. :) Good luck!
Avatar m tn I remember being very young 11 or 12 i guess, and standing on my bed so i could get more sunlight from the window so i could see my face batter so i could pick hairs ,pick pimples and scabs on my face. I remember having a scab on my scalp, which was the result of a fly bite, that kept scabbing, and i kept picking for over a year and a half, the SAME scab....like"what the hell". I still pick my face, more that anything, i do pick my legs, and pubic region for ingrowns, and my chest.
Avatar f tn Take Benadryl or Claritin and apply calamine lotion or a mild steroid cream after shaving and if the symptoms persist then you can opt for waxing or laser hair removal.A consultation of a cosmetologist will be the best in that case. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
Avatar n tn I keep getting tiny white bumps that appear in random places in my genital area. I have 2 tiny bumps on the head of my penis and a couple of the shaft area, and some on my inner thigh and where all the pubic hair is. I never got these until I shaved one time about 3 months ago and then I got like 3 white bumps and they went away and then a few days later other white bumps popped up in random spots. Idk whats going on and I'm really worried.
Avatar n tn I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
Avatar n tn i was never hairy, and since im 20 i started getting lot of hairs even in belly and face (mustache) and ofc the ones on nipple that worries me lot... ill test my hormone levels with a doctor because i think that may be the only reason. And advice for all, all i can say is stop plucking the hairs if they are coming ingrown, is really worse to have scars (i already have all legs with scars and full ingrown, and thats why i will stop plucking in nipples).
Avatar n tn Johnsons baby moisturising cream in the white squeeze tube is all i use on rare occasions on my face and anywhere else that may need it. A small amount goes far. Both of these products are £3 or less each. Please try them as they work (the steroid creams etc i was prescribed did not). Please post and let me know how you all get on... James Cawston.
Avatar n tn You may want to try waxing your legs and putting on sensitive skin lotion after getting out of the shower
Avatar m tn same things happening to me/ after a few seconds after turning out the light and laying down I start feeling these things here and there, especially around my ears/back of neck, upper shoulder area/ on my face, which drives me crazy -on my leg, foot, arm (it's intermittent)can't sleep much any more, have been wondering different things/ could someone put something in our air-conditioner air handler outside?
Avatar n tn The recipe contained brown sugar lemon juice and water. I waxed around my chin area and upper lip. After waxing within the 3 days after I developed red bumps in those areas. I am not sure if you can consider it rosacea or not. I have had acne prone skin for my whole life but recently got over it, so I am not stressed and worried as my skin is no longer clear. The bumps are very close together and feel very rough, they are also quite sore.
Avatar n tn When the bumps appear, it is usually two at a time sometimes even three (two on the left and one on the right or vise versa). The bumps first swell, the skin on the bump then turns into a pinkish-red color; the bumps sometimes itch as well as become sore. They become soft, and eventually cause a white or yellowish discharge if I mess with them. Then, after two to three weeks they curst over and disappear (then come again a month or two later).
Avatar n tn Hi, Im only 16 years old and i have swollen bumps on my inner thighs...and at first i didnt know what they were..so i would squeeze them just thinking maybe they were like pimples or something?..and then white pus would come out and then blood..but it would still be big, or sometimes nothing would come out..it would just stick further out in the skin. And right now i have about 5 or 6..not very big..maybe sizes of a pea or something?
Avatar n tn I dont ware eye protection and I use tanning lotion on my face. I continued to tan throughout that wek, along iwth outdoor sun in FL. I got a small rsh under my eyebrow its mainly in the corner of my eye. I thought i was from the waxing so i continued to go in the sun. The small red bumps neevr went away untill I I began using cortezone creme andkeeping out of the sun. Now the bumps are gone and the rash is just light pink bt still visible to me.
990728 tn?1249345134 First of all i have spots on my face and i'm 18 years old so i guess they are acne and they leave scars on my face.......also on my arms and back......besides black holes which i don't know how to get rid of and when i empty those they form holes on my skin......so finally i have scars and holes which really makes me look bad and outdoor activity turns me black.the sun affects my skin badly and my hands are totally a different color compared to my body.
Avatar n tn thank u for your responses. do you think it could be follicullitis from the waxing? however, i do have some bumps on clitoris as well. would you be able to describe what your sores look like?
Avatar n tn I bet it depends on the laser. I know there are a TON of different types of lasers out there. I'm in AZ, and I'm not sure which laser they use at the place I go. As for prices here, for some reason there seems to be a lot of competition in the hair removal business...I guess there are a lot of hairy people walking around in AZ - ha ha!
Avatar n tn I went to an integrative dermatolgist and she prescribed me ketoconazole cream to use on my face and the rash improved although it does wax/wane. It got particularly bad on one weekend around the same time that I also got a vaginal yeast infection. Could that be connected and is perioral dermatitis a fungal infection? I went back to the dermatolgist last week and explained the situation to her.
Avatar n tn I got a cyst? on my face a year and a half ago and my internist sent me to a dermatologist to get injected. It didn't go away, but just got worse, until one year ago it was "removed". Yet, it came right back and got worse. I was on minocycline for 7 months, and doxycycline for years before that, yet neither helped.
454677 tn?1206691163 Usually my jaw hurts along with it and the pain comes on randomly and has been going on before I even started taking Synthroid. I have been on Prevacid, it didn't work, then they had me take Metoclopramide 10mg that gave me diarrhea and made me tired all the time so I got taken off that and they put me on Aciphex.20mg I've been on that almost a month now, and its working a little on the nausea in the mornings, but does nothing for the pains.
Avatar f tn Oh gosh, I'm sorry to hear this hon. Sounds painful. Is it like a burn from the heat of the wax coupled with irritation? After waxing, it helps to run cold water over the burn area and apply ice. You can still apply ice. And perhaps put some aloe vera on the area (pure). Dab it on rather than rub it. Now, I want to make sure this is a burn type of thing and not an allergic reaction. Allergic reactions usually have little bumps. It usually shows up one to two days after the waxing.
Avatar f tn shaving only makes it worse and is only soft for maybe2 hours if im lucky... epilating, waxing and plucking causing ingrown hairs so i get those big nasty red infected bumps everywhere! its a living nightmare. i cant go swimming,wear shorts or skirts, show my belly, its even at the stage where i want to run and hide the second the word sex comes up.... seriously on the verge of going mental... i went to the doc and she didnt even look at it...
