How To Wax Your Labia
Hard to say..: Without actually looking at the irritation in person, but you can try OTC hydrocortisone 2.5% for the itching and (assumed) irritation to see if that helps. You could also try a moisturizing cream as well like Eucerin several times daily to try as well. If no help after 2-3 days, have your doc take a look at it. Best of luck!
Don't recommend: Waxing labial hair. The skin of labia is tender. Waxing can damage that tissue & be quite painful. That would be quite different that doing a bikini wax.
Received a Brazilian wax today. Isn't my first time. Was new place. Was stinging and now inner labia is red, hurts to wipe after going to the toilet?
Hi. I recently had a Brazilian wax and the part in between my labia minora and labia majora was torn. Around 2 1/2" in length. Dr or abx ointment?
Cut: If this is superficial you can probably use antibiotic and it will heal, but if you have a 2 and 1/2 inch cut through the skin get seen by physician.
Is it ok to remove hair by Brazilian wax in labia minora and da border between labia majora n labia minora?

I found a small dark lump on my labia majora after getting a bikini wax. It's been a couple days and it seems to be getting bigger. What could it be?
Have a hard pea-sized lump on my labia majora. Sore when walking or sitting. Wax monthly. Applied heat, blood & pus came out. What could this be?
It got "goosed".: When the hot wax is applied and removed ("ripped off"), the muscles under the skin called Erector pili elevate the skin in the form of "goosebumps" which also occurs when your body is frightened or cold as a reaction. Hot waxing is definitely a "female" endeavor as it a harsh "medieval" way to do the jab that a electric shaver or razor does just as well. Women are tougher then men in that regard.
I use waxing strips on my vulva? How to avoid after-waxing blemishes/bumps/ingrown hairs on buttocks?
You shouldn't be: Applying waxing strips to your vulva. The tissues are very delicate. It is best to have sugar waxing techniques to the bikini line or inner thigh done by a professional.
Only you know: Labia come in all shapes and sizes and have different coloring. There really is no "too big" or abnormal so if you're bothered by the appearance or if they are bothersome in swimsuits or exercise, then see a specialist for an evaluation as genital plastic surgery can improve appearance and function dramatically.See 2 more doctor answers
Labia Reduction: Patients who present with “enlarged labia” may have problems wearing certain clothing, exercising, riding bikes/horses, and/or with sexual activity. These patients may be candidates for labia minora reduction surgery (labiaplasty). Careful selection of surgeon is important; ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.See 4 more doctor answers
