It may: There are 2 different reactions that you may have to a cream that causes darkening. First, you may be allergic to the cream and the darkening is a response.

Hello doctors is face hair removal creams safe and which one do you recommend thank you?

Hello doctors is face hair removal creams safe and which one do you recommend thank you?

Depends where you use it: Depilatory creams are not safe to use around the eyes, by the eyebrows. So don't use it on that part of your face. Often they are used for upper lip area, and are safe, around the chin area or temples. However is very irritating to the eyes, so don't recommending washing your face afterwards. Better to use a washcloth with soapy warm water to the areas you were removing the hair. We are not allowed to recommend specific products. So do your own market research on which Cream people tend to feel most comfortable using.

My underarms skin became black due to hair removal cream. Pls help me to get my natural complexion back.

First, be sure...: ...That the hair removal cream is the culprit, because other things can cause skin darkening. A dermatologist can help you do that. A cream containing hydroquinone can be prescribed to lighten the darkened skin, but it's a slow process; be patient.

Hello doctors I know you cant recommend any product but what ingredients do I have to find in a hair removal cream thank you?

Hello doctors I know you cant recommend any product but what ingredients do I have to find in a hair removal cream thank you?

Thyoglycolates: Most hair removal creams contain thioglycolate sulfates and salts. They work by breaking down the protein in the hair where it exits from the follicle, causing it to fall off. But don't count on the labels to find the best choice. They may be confusing, incomplete or too small to read. Stick with products that are described as "mild" "gentle" or "hypoallergenic" and follow the instructions!

Male, I have just used hair removal cream on my scotrum, feeling irritaion, pain onthe skin of scotrum. What to do? Are they damaged permanently?

No: Not damaged permanently. The skin on the scrotum is sensitive and is irritated from the chemical. Get some 1% hydrocortisone and apply to the irritated area three times a day for a few days.

Skin irritation only: I would not recommend using a chemical depilatory cream anywhere near the penis, scrotum or anus. I have seen countless people with chemical burns to these areas over the years. Careful use of a safety razor in these areas is much less likely to cause you problems. There is no effect on the testicles

I have chemical burns from hair removal cream, any suggestions?

I have chemical burns from hair removal cream, any suggestions?

Hair remover burns: I can appreciate your frustration. For hair remover burns simply wash the area copiously with cool water. Then apply an antibiotic ointment such as bacitracin, to the area 2-3 times a day. Long er term effects such as skin increased pigmentation would suggest the appropriateness of a visit to a dermatologist.

What is better: shaving or hair removal cream?

Cream, but...: Depilatory creams dissolve hairs so that they wipe away. The hair left behind is usually softer than if it had been shaved. Razors cut hair at an angle, making the regrowth look thicker & more likely to develop ingrown hairs & razor bumps. The major downside to the creams is potential irritation & you need to use caution near the mucosa (mouth, vagina). Electric razors are a good option, too.
