Make sure that it does not touch the vaginal skin as it will be very irritating to the 'mucosal' skin of the vagina. Good luck! ...Read more

As a doctor do you recommend your patient  to use cream hair removal on the face and what kind of words or ingredient I look for the best cream thanks?

Creams can be irrita: Facial hair is best treated with electrolysis if you want it to be permanent. Facial creams can be irritating and cause other facial problems.

This would require different treatment. Further history is req ...Read more

No: The skin in the pubic area is too delicate. If you use the normal hair remover cream or wax, it may cause serious irritation and pain increasing the risk of skin infection. There are specialized products for that area. Better yet, have it waxed by at a salon/spa. They can do a better job, have the right products, and can take care of any irritation that may develop. ...Read more

I : I agree with above. Many facial products contain fragrances and preservatives that patients can be allergic or sensitive to. Hydrocortisone cream and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) might help and a visit to a dermatologist will be helpful if the symptoms persist or worsen.
