Customer Question

My name is ***** *****. I used a hair removal cream and caused a painful burn. It's excruciatingly painful to pee, I've had some spotting. I'm wondering what I can put on it so I at least don't have to cry when I pee?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I used it on my vagina. Unfortunately some got up inside the lips and around the opening, I rinsed it very well with cool water, but unfortunately as I said it is killing me to pee
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Health Professionals generally expect a deposit of about $32 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

I do think this is a allergic reaction from the hair removal cream.

Probably you can take over the counter anti-allergic medication like cetirizine or allegra.

Your doctor can also do a urine test to rule out associated urinary infection also.

To reduce localised swelling you can take NSAID like motrin also.

Also you can apply 1% hydro-cortisone on the skin to reduce inflammation.
