Went to go get my eyebrows waxed yesterday, left with bright red burns just above my crease. :rage: any suggestions for what to do? I put some neosporin on it overnight.

    Id ice it as much as possible during the day and use vit e oil at night.

    Edit: just looked it up. DONT ice the burn, just cool it. You can use cool not cold water.

    Ouch. Been there and done that.

    Treating Burns: First Aid and Home Treatment for Minor Burns

    Home treatment for minor burns
    For home treatment of first-degree burns and sunburns:

    Use cool cloths on burned areas.

    Take frequent cool showers or baths.

    Apply soothing lotions that contain aloe vera to burned areas to relieve pain and swelling. Applying 0.5% hydrocortisone cream to the burned area also may help. Note: Do not use the cream on children younger than age 2 unless your doctor tells you to. Do not use in the rectal or vaginal area of children younger than age 12 unless your doctor tells you to.

    There isn't much you can do to stop skin from peeling after a sunburn-it is part of the healing process. Lotion may help relieve the itching.

    Other home treatment measures, such as chamomile, may help relieve your sunburn symptoms.

    Some doctors suggest using skin lotions, such as Vaseline Intensive Care or Lubriderm, on first-degree burns or second-degree burns that have unbroken healing skin. These skin lotions can be used to relieve itching but should not be used if the burns have fluid weeping from them or have fresh scabs. An antihistamine, such as Benadryl or Chlor-Trimeton, can also help stop the itching. Read and follow any warning on the label.

    When a first-degree burn or minor second-degree burn is 2 to 3 days old, using the juice from an aloe leaf can help the burn heal and feel better. Applying the aloe juice may sting at first contact.

    It is important to protect a burn while it is healing.

    Newly healed burns can be sensitive to temperature. Healing burns need to be protected from the cold, because the burned area is more likely to develop frostbite.

    A newly burned area can sunburn easily. Sunscreen with a high sun protective factor (SPF at least 30) should be used for the first year after a burn to protect the new skin.

    Do not smoke. Smoking slows healing because it decreases blood supply and delays tissue repair. For more information, see the topic Quitting Smoking.

    Symptoms to Watch For During Home Treatment
    Use the Check Your Symptoms section to evaluate your symptoms if any of the following occur during home treatment.

    Pain, limited movement, or numbness develops.
    Difficulty breathing develops.
    Signs of infection develop.
    Symptoms become more severe or frequent.

    Try a nonprescription medicine to help treat your fever or pain:
    Acetaminophen, such as Tylenol
    Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs):
    Ibuprofen, such as Advil or Motrin
    Naproxen, such as Aleve or Naprosyn
    Aspirin (also a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), such as Bayer or Bufferin
