Having marks, pimples on chin due to threading and waxing. Medication or cream for treatment?

hi, due to waxing and threading my chin area i have got marks there n permanent pimple type growths. it looks bad n sometimes pains also. n hairs coming from there are very sharp. they seem they wont heal. don t suggest me laser for hair removal , but suggest an ointment or medication which heals my affected area of my wounds. am scared it might not become cancerous, as though i keep my parlour visits minimum, but still inevitable sometimes.

Hi Dimpy,
From the description, I gather you primarily have two concerns
Waxing or threading induced folliculitis or perifolliculitis- it can be treated by application of flutibact cream twice in a day and tretinoin cream in night.
Hair growth- the hair growth over chin can be reduced by waxing followed by eflornithine cream application daily
Though you are reluctant about laser but it is the best treatment option in your case.
Hope that answers your query.
Take care
