After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?

After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?

Tea tree oil may sting: If the area is already irritated, using tea tree oil may sting, burn, or irritate the skin. So it may make the area more red and inflamed. You're better off using something that's much more mild and less stinging. Pure lavender oil (lavandula agustafolia) is more soothing, because it has less camphor in it, but if it's made from (lavandula), it will be just as irritating as tea tree oil.

Also, clinically we can also recognize whether it's an autoimmune condition.
I would recommend having it examined in person. ...Read more
