Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Due to the hair removal cream you may be having reaction and inflammation for which you are having burning sensation.

Since it is inflammed any contact with std infected female body fluid increases chances of you acquiring infection. Since already inflammed skin have reduced immunity and infection controlling power.

I would suggest you to look for any development of itching or continuation of burning , any wound or swelling etc. If you develop anyone among these then I insist you to consult a dermatologist and get checked.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Is it safe to take biotin while receiving laser hair removal treatments on the body? I m in between sessions of having the hair permanently removed on my arms and legs but am also trying to grow my hair longer and thicker on my head.
