Thanks for the query

Veet hair removal cream should not be used around mucous membrane ( vaginal area). Kindly avoid doing that in the future

I would Like to know a few more things in Oder to help you better

1. How long has it been since it's burning ?
2. Is the area red and tender to touch as well?
3. Did you develop fever ?
4. Has the area become itchy ?

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply

Thanks for replying

I suggest you to take anti inflammatory drugs like levocetrizine at night to reduce the inflammation and urine alkaliniser like syp citraalka three times a day till the burning of urine comes down. Continue applying the sudo cream. It issue should settle by 1 week.
Please approach a gynaec for a quick examination and prescription,

I hope I have answered your query, I am sorry for the delay in reply I was stuck at the hospital with a case
