the aloe stuff that you use for sunburn. I had the same thing happen to me along time ago.

 I guess you left it on too long?It always burns my legs when applying but i can rinse it off and be better.

I can not use Nair because I have a reaction to whatever is in the stuff. My legs swell and my veins get swollen and look like they are going to pop out of my legs. Its really gross. I had to use some cream the dr gave me for the reaction to go away. Do you have some hydro cream. maybe that will help

I can't use nair because of this same reaction..it almost feels like a chemical burn.. try aloe..good luck!

 yikes... that is why the packaging tells you to test a small area of your skin before applying all over.  I hope the aloe helps!

Ouch! I can't use Nair either. It always makes me have a reaction. I hope you find something that helps.

aloe?  vitamin e?  i learned a while back that truly the best way to control leg hair is unfortunatley shaving.  i guess waxing might work for me if i went to a professional but shaving is definitly what i have found to be the gentlest.  i love the venus razors.  sorry 'bout your burn.
