tcklebunni answered Friday February 10 2006, 11:05 pm: Yes. IF you put nair on your face or somewhere it tells you not to put it, it WILL burn and it WILL end up looking like you got into a fight with a cougar. I guess your arms are very sensitive. JUst put a thin layer of Nair and keep it there for like 3 minutes. [ tcklebunni's advice column | Ask tcklebunni A Question ]
jesa21 answered Friday February 10 2006, 7:49 pm: nair if left on longer than directed or if put on sensitive skin can cause chemical burns. ive only had this happen once just a small spot on my eyebrow, i rubbed in a little neosporin an kept makeup, lotions, an other beauty crap off it. it healed up in about 4 days. if the burns hurt really bad an cover more than a 3 inch area id see a doctor in case the burns are too serious for home remedies. you might also have luck with a cool damp compress.
not ice tho, it will only damage the nerves more. [ jesa21's advice column | Ask jesa21 A Question ]

HOPLESSxROMNTC answered Friday February 10 2006, 5:35 am: You most likely had an allergic reaction, the same thing happened to my friend so she couldnt even use Nair anymore. Im no docter but it could of also just been because it was on your arm to long and your skin was sensitive to it. Try putting only a samply on again and see the right amount of time etc.

betterthanyou_X3 answered Friday February 10 2006, 3:47 am: Either that or you're having an allergic reaction. Some people's skin is more sensitive than others so for you, 4 minutes might have been too long. If you know your skin isn't that sensitive then it's an allergic reaction. Put some aloe on it and I don't recommend using Nair anymore. [ betterthanyou_X3's advice column | Ask betterthanyou_X3 A Question ]
