Allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
Hello
You have developed allergic reaction to veet.
It is a common condition and can be treated easily.
Steroid creams work well.
Apply a mild steroid cream like mometasone twice daily for a week.
It is safe and effective.
Also take an antihistamine tablet daily for a week.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Use aloevera cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
You can use aloevera cream.
Depigmenting creams can be used but there are chances of allergic reaction hence better to avoid them.
Just apply aloevera cream and wait for results.
It might take 3 to 4 months for total recovery.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Use steroid cream first

Detailed Answer:
Hello
If you still have red patches then inflammation is still there.
As I suggested earlier first you need to apply a mild steroid cream like mometasone.
This will help in taking care of redness.
Once the redness is gone you can use aloevera or coconut oil.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
