Hello, I'm Dr. Stacy Mobley. I'm a naturopathic physician that believes in blending the best of mainstream and natural therapies to help you transform your health, re-energize your life and renew your mind. Today we're going to talk about two reasons why you may have red blotches after waxing. Number one, you're allergic to some ingredients that may be listed on your ingredient list in the wax product. Check the back of the box, visit The Environmental Working Group website, just to check and see if there's anything that's triggering a reaction in you. Number two is simply your skin is irritated after waxing which is normal. When you layer a wax on your skin to pull the hair off, sometimes it may pull the top layer of your skin as well. This will cause a redness in the area otherwise known as inflammation. This is totally normal. It should go away in about a couple of days, one to two days. If it does not go away in one to two days, I suggest you see your dermatologist for a further evaluation. I'm Dr. Stacy Mobley. I believe in treating the whole person using treatment options that are right for you. To learn more about me and my practice, visit Dr. spelled
