I waxed my vagina using veet wax strips and burnt it so bad the whole area is red and so painful I can barely keep my knickers on or even sit. Please?

"Hot" wax treatment: I am very sorry that your wax treatment has turned "hot" and feels like the candle flame instead.

In the interim, the pain can be addressed by sitting in a hot bath and using ibuprofen temporarily. ...Read more
