Skin rashes and bumps from hair removal creame

Hello Doctor, Skin rashes and bumps developed after i applied veet hair removal cream on my inner thighs and bikini line. First day there were only 2-3 bumps on my inner thighs, so i ignored hoping it will go way in a day or two. However when that part gets in touch with water it causes a lot of irritation and itching and i couldnt control myself from scratching and now after 4 days it has spread almost along the bikine line. I'm applying johnson baby powder to keep it dry.

Can you pls suggest any cream that i can apply to get rid of irritation, itching, rash and bumps ? Can i apply Candid B cream ?

Many thanks for your kind help in advance.

With Kind Regards

Hi, You use a skin cream that has salts clotrimazole and gentamicin. These will almost cure your problem.

The creams or solutions containing salicylic acid, glycolic acid, aloe, or any combination of these ingredients work well for rashes. If any infection is there then you can use alovera. You can also take advice from the dermatologist or expert beautician. But frequent waxing is not really good for skin so you can think of laser hair removal which significantly reduce the hair growth.
