Hiya,

Favour for a friend, she used a Veet wax strip and then hair removal cream within a space of a few minutes in the same area of skin, she is in so much pain this is a few days later. Any suggestions on how she can release the pain! Thank you

Show the pharmacist and see what they suggest, maybe some kind of soothing antiseptic cream like Sudocrem but I wouldn't put anything on it without advice first.

When you wax you remove a layer of skin and the the removal cream also dissolves a small amount of skin as hair n skin have a similar make up. I would suggest she went either to a chemist or a walkin doctors she could have caused a chemical burn and will need to be extremely careful not to get an infection.
Something like natural yogurt will sooth but I would tell her to get it looked at.
