Waxing allergy

Waxing is a quick way to remove hairs from most areas of the body and it is common for bumps to develop on the skin after waxing; observe small, red bumps on the skin immediately after waxing, other my notice about a week later.

Causes:

Contact dermatitis due to an allergic reaction or irritation; soap and detergents are common culpits, but the warse and chemicals its contains may also contribute to contact dermatitis. The bumps are very itchy. Other symptoms are burning, astinging sentation. Swelling, peeling skin. Folliculitis; causes itchy bumps have a red ring arround them,may look similar to acne. Due to damage following hair removal, bacteria like staph.infect the follicales, which are warm to touch, pus form; tought clothing that rubs against the hair follicles can cause further irritation and may worse the condition.

Treatment:

Keep the area clean, dry and moisturized, as this can help reduce irritation of the skin. Cleansing the skin. Using cold compresses. Wearing loose clothing. Using warm compresses. (medicalnewstoday.com).

Detergent allergy

“Detergent allergy”, also a, “Contact Dermatitis”, (i.e. skin inflammation) is caused by an adverse reaction to something that touches the skin, including chemicals found in a detergent soap or a fragrance. For examples, you may develop a rash on your palm after you try a new brand of soap or lotion. As symptoms blisters, bruising, itchiness, pus or discharge and redness, warmth or swelling, scale formation and tenderness or pains on affected contact area are seen (healthgrades.com).

Treatment:

Treating detergent allergy depends on the underlying cause.  Some rashes can heal on their own way and require no treatment. In other cases, treatment could be as simple as using lotion to moisturize your dry skin. Otherwise anti-allergic, antihistamine medicines may be given (healthline.com).
