HELP!! Veet just burned the skin right off my legs! What can I put on it?

I used Veet on my legs...it's been awhile. I think I left it on too long or rubbed it in too much! What can I put on my burning legs? Looks like some of my skin came off! Please help....It hurts soooo bad!

  • Oh my! I suppose it would be best to use aloe. Since your skin is broken, you have to be really careful with what you put on it.

  • How long did you wait after shaving before you used veet. When using a depilatory like veet you need to not shave for about 3 weeks. You actually remove the top layer of skin when you shave.. If you don't give it time to grow back, the depilatory eats at it. You have a chemical burn. Try a solarcane spray, it has lidocane in it, and will numb it.

  • I took a first aid class for this.. When this happens cover your legs with wet cold cloths cover every inch of it. and keep the cloths wet and cold if u have to rewet do so. iwouldnt rub anything but pure aloe, or some neosporen would also help

  • Oh God, Thank you ladies! I did put Neosporin with pain reliever in it on it! It's helping a little! NEVER AGAIN!
