As: As you know by now these hair removal creams are much too strong for the delicate skin of the genitals, especially the scrotum.

This may help.
If the area becomes swollen, hot, or you develop a fever please see a doctor.
All the best. ...Read more

Chemical burn.: Hair removal lotions can cause skin irritation, but don't generally cause permanent damage. The skin of the penis and scrotum is quite sensitive, however, so it often feels a lot worse than it is. You can continue to keep the area clean and watch it carefully. If the skin becomes swollen or starts to peel off, make a private appointment with a HealthTap doctor to be safe. ...Read more
