Applied hair removal cream on genitals. Burning sensation, bleeding. Labial swelling. What should I do?

Hello I am a woman who not very long ago used Nair Hair removal on my gential area. Not realizing how close it was to my labia and vulva I left it there for to long and experienced and VERY intense burning sensation. I imediately went to wash it off, but as I looked at my rag I noticed blood on it. I ve done this before, but never had blood appear or such bad labia swelling . What should I do? Please help.

Thanks for the query.

You must have developed an allergic reaction to the cream.

You need treatment with topical steroids like hydrocortisone.

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

Dont worry its a common condition ,

Soon you will be fine.

Please meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding this.
