Customer Question
I recently got a Brazilian...
I recently got a Brazilian wax from my salon I frequent. I noticed a bulge from labia minora on the left side but it hasn't reduced the swelling. It's only on one side and there is no discharge, or itching sensation. Please advise.

This is likely a burn from the wax touching an area that it should not have touched. An icepack for the first two days can help. You may need to see a Dr if it does not. You can use some A and D ointment. You can also try some Silvadene burn ointment

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
