4 natural ways to treat underarm rash caused due to waxing
For many women, waxing is an important part of their grooming routine. Though effective in removing underarm hair, waxing can also cause rashes.
If you find yourself frequently being prone to rashes after a waxing or hair removal session, here’s what you can do to treat your underarm rash.
The ice treatment
The use of ice can be an effective underarm rash treatment. Simply take a soft washcloth, wrap ice cubes with it and place it over the sore or inflamed areas. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes and repeat a few times to reduce inflammation and soothe the rashes. An alternative treatment involves wetting the soft washcloth in iced water and placing it over the rashes.
Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera is known for its cooling, hydrating, and anti-inflammatory properties making it the perfect underarm rash treatment. The use of aloe vera can provide relief and even prevent rashes after a waxing session. Aloe vera in gel form works well for underarm treatment. Refrigerate aloe vera gel and use the cold gel on your skin. The cold aloe vera gel combined with its soothing properties will give you relief from rashes and treat it effectively.
Vitamin E or tea tree oil
Apply vitamin E or tea tree oil on your skin 2-3 times a day. These oils are great for treating rashes and healing the skin. Plus, these oils are safe and natural.
Grape seed oil
Grape seed oil is an ancient underarm rash treatment known for its soothing and healing properties. It heals scars on the skin and cures rashes. Just take a small amount of this oil and apply it to your skin for instant relief. Cotton balls are not needed for applying this and you can apply it with your fingers and massage your skin gently since this essential oil is completely natural.
The above underarm rash treatment methods can work wonders when applied regularly. Give your skin some time to heal and and you should see results pretty soon. You can also use an antibacterial topical ointment for speedy healing. Even though these remedies are safe, in case of any discomfort discontinue their use.
