What causes swelling and burning sensation in the labia after using Veet cream?

I used Veet hair removal cream today & I m having a burning sensation on one of the labias of my vagina. I looked at it & it looks swollen because it s really big & I noticed that after I used it there are some bumps around my vaginal opening & I don t have an STD because I got checked last month & I m cleared. I m just worried because this is making my vagina look very unappealing.

It could be an allergy to veet. Very difficult to comment without seeing directly or pictures. Feel free to ask your doubt with more details.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I used Veet on my genital area today, accidentally some of the cream got spread inside the labia. There was no irritation for the time when Veet was applied. After I removed it, a stinging sensation occurred on my labia; when I washed it with water, it caused a terrible burning sensation; and it burns even when I pee. Please help.
