Say if someone was not a qualified waxer and forgot to make their waxing appointment and did it themselves with waxing strips for example...a terrible thing to do I know. Especially when not qualified to do such a job...
and that person has taken some of their skin off their top lip and surounding area.....
and its very red and inflamed around the area....
what would that person use to make it better??
Moisturiser, Savlon etc or is there something else that person could use to make it miraculously cured overnight?
Especially as that person is going to a wedding tomorrow:eek:

I wonder who that person is LOL.

I wouldn't put moisteriser on it. Either leave it or put Savlon if that's the choice. xxx

i always swear by Sudocream, you know the baby stuff, worked when i did the same thing to one eyebrow :cry: But then everyones skin is different and will calm down at different rates.

Sorry Judy, I was laughing at me not you, I just used heaps of savlon and no foundation round there, actually no one really noticed.
be gone in no time.
I did wax, take the skin off and then have another go and took more skin off (why oh why???)

Compeed do a wonderful coldsore plaster, which you can get in the chemist. It's almost invisible, and you can put makeup on it. It really does a great job of hiding the coldsore, but I haven't found it speeds up the healing like it claims. I know it's not a coldsore you have, but it might protect the raw skin a bit? Hope "your friend" enjoys the wedding!

Try cold compresses too Judy this may help with any redness and swelling - then try the bag if all else fails - LOL

Def aloe vera gel but got to say thou cant beat Australian body care tea tree oil hand & body lotion - calms the pain, cools the heat and more importantly keeps it clean. I find it heals the skin well too.

Burnt my arm on the iron big style and I couldnt sleep without it!!!
