Re: ingrown hair after waxing - how to prevent
Don't wax!! I've just gotten out of the hospital after 3 weeks and 2 surgeries because of waxing with Nads. I also developed ingrown hairs and thought I could just pick them away. . .WRONG! I developed a severe staff infection on both legs and then it turned into something the surgeon called Celulitous. I have a hole on one leg just below and to the outside of my right knee that's over 2 inches across and 1 1/2 or 2 inches deep! The other leg only had a "small" one behind the knee and just had to be lanced. Neverthless, I'm still on crutches and off of work going on 3 weeks now without alot of hope for much before another 2 weeks of changing dressings 3 times per day, massive doses of antibiotics and even morphene for the extreme pain. So, I ask you, please, please don't let this happen to you. You never know what's lurking under your nails, on tweezers or even on the product you bought in the store. This is not anything to mess with! I could have lost my leg or legs and even my life if this had not been taken care of. What's worse is I don't have medical insurance right now due to job change and this single parent didn't need this completely avoidable expense this has caused. Take care and good luck. It doesn't matter how careful or clean you try to be - it happens.
