DON'T use NAIR THERE: Vagina or bikini line? Bikini line options – use washcloth soaked in cold water or even ice water as a compress x 15 minutes. No not apply ice directly to skin. Petroleum based lubricants/ jellies/ lotions (aquaphor ointment, vaseline) or aloe can help to maintain moisture. Hydrocortisone cream can be applied for significant inflammation. For blistering – consult with your doctor.
