How bad is it that i got the Nair i just used in open sores on my hands??

I can barely bend my fingers otherwise the sores will split even more open.

I have dry hands but didnt think nair would make my skin SPLIT open...

they hurt sooo bad itch and burn and are all red and have a clear liquid coming from them lightly.

my legs are fine, no reaction...well at first right after i rinsed it off i got little bity bumps on my legs.. only like 8 though they went away

  • nair is very strong, remember it basically burns your hair away..wash your hands and don't scratch them.

  • Yeah, rinse them, put and antibiotic on them. It might hurt for awhile, but it will probably be ok.

  • i did wash them, but they are sooooooo goin crazy im an idiot i should have put gloves on or something or had my So put it on me.

    This was definitely my stupidity. I have light eczema on my hands... stupid move on my part but the nair is what made the sores bust open, they weren't there before.

  • do you have Eucerine or a 1% hydracortizone(sp?) cream?

    both of those should help tremendously....the 1% will help with the eczema
