  • get an aloe & vitamin E based lotion.

    also some neosporine with pain relief in the really bad spots will help.

    my experience with hair remover creams is that Veet works the best without giving me a chemical burn or rash like all the other ones did.

  • i use aquaphilic (SP?) its a very thick lotion... and helps but aloe will help a bit more for the burns... try not to get scented lotion it makes the burn worse at times.. GL

  • It sounds like you may have left it on too long, or had an allergic reaction. Your best bet is to try some aloe and a little neosporin on any broken skin. Also, take a couple motrin. The motrin is an anti-inflammatory and will help with the "rash" part, and the pain as well.

  • Oh, one more thing: Don't use anything with perfumes or colors...it will only make it worse.
