Avatar f tn Hello, What you are having is irritated hair follicles and dermatitis after the laser treatment. Although a side effect of laser hair removal, it also means that the hair follicles have swelled from treatment. You should continue using the steroid cream and also moisturize the skin properly. But take care to use it in the proper amounts and schedule.

Avatar f tn HI There, I had laser hair removal treatment carried out on my legs, underarms and bikini area 4 days ago. Whilst my underarms and bikini are healing well, I have broken out in an "acne" type rash which is itchy on my legs. I have been taking a piriton at night and piriteze during the day and also using sudocrem on my skin. Is there anything else that I can do to alleviate the itch, speed up the healing and prevent any scarring?

Avatar f tn I had my first session of laser hair removal for lower legs yesterday and after a few hours my legs started itching. The itch was so bad that I couldn't help not to scratch them and today I noticed red spots all over my lower legs. The red spots look like rash and are itchy. I'm worried that the laser might have burned my skin. Dose anybody knows if this is normal or I should stop laser hair removal treatment?
Avatar f tn Is there anything i can do to get rid of the hair beside laser hair removal? and if it is, is the procedure safe? any side effects? Or is there something i can use to make pores smaller and remove the hair, maybe a cream or ointment? Im just a college student and i want to avoid spending 1000 for laser hair removal, and not it's not just a problem of ugly legs, it's a problem of red, irriated, ugly legs with LOTS OF SHORT HAIR and HUGE pores. I really appreciate any help.

Avatar n tn Hello, Folliculitis is common after hair removal. After laser hair removal, apply cold compresses(ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the rash and take some antihistaminic like benadryl or claritin.You can also apply calamine lotion on the rash. It will help in soothing the skin. Application of topical antibiotics like Neosporin will also help.

Avatar f tn About 2 months ago I noticed discoloration near the line of my pubic area only on the right side. I've had Laser hair removal a year ago and thought this is what it was..maybe the hairs growing back. Recently I noticed one spot .5cm to 1cm on the left pubic hair line. So now there is a patch on the right that is 1.5 inches diameter which has been there for a while and growing on the left too. The skin is raised and slightly yellow and red. No itching but looks noticeably different.
Avatar m tn I have developed some itchy red bumps 1 weeks after my 2nd E-light hair removal treatment. Nothing happened for the 1st treatment, and it is the same lady doing it. She told me she even lowered the energy a little for the 2nd treatment. Nothing happen after the treatment but only after 1 week after the treatment. The worst part is, I am going to the beach 2 days later, what should i do now?
