Hello Yeni, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Waxing is an action to remove semi-permanent hair by pulling up to the hair root. In the process, this action can sometimes cause minor injuries, skin irritation, or folliculitis.
Folliculitis is an infection or inflammation of the hair follicle. Normally, our skin always has normal bacteria or flora that are not harmful or harmful. However, when there is injury to the skin (as the outermost defense of our body), some microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, or viruses can enter the body and cause local (local) infection and inflammation. When this happens, the body responds by activating inflammatory cells and the body's defense cells, to fight incoming germs. The effects of this process are redness, slight swelling, and itching.
Some factors that can cause folliculitis are cleanliness of the skin before waxing, cleanliness of the tools and materials used, skin sensitivity, and techniques used. Normally, these symptoms can go away by themselves for several weeks, if our immune system can beat germs or relieve irritation. However, as for things you can do right now to speed up the process:
Cold water compresses on the affected area Maintain cleanliness of the skin and hands used fever, pain that cannot be tolerated, consult a general practitioner or dermatologist.
Thus, hopefully can help.
