But don't worry about STD; whatever you have, it isn't from your sex partner. ...Read more

I had a full body wax for the first time. I have broken out into very large rashes including on my arms groin and entire buttocks. What should I do?

This will likely improve over anywhere from a few hours to a day or so, and a cold-water bath or shower may feel good and relieve some of the redness/pain. Creams/products are unlikely to help a rash of this type. ...Read more
