yea it is kinda, cuase i did that with my legs and i guess i had some of that nair on my hands for too long and it kinda burn some of my skin. It grows back so don't worry it's not hazardus. The thing is, is that nair burns out the hair roots from under your skin, keeping you're hands on it too long will burn the soft part of your skin. Try that with you're finger tips, it's hard playing games and feeling the burn... literaly

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.

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.

Yes it's possible..aghh I hate Nair! It burns so bad. But if you like it, then you should follow the directions on the box..that way, next time, you won't get burns.

Yes this is possible.. Not everybody needs to leave it on for the time it says on the bottle.. Rub some lotion on it [non scented] if its scented it might burn or irratate it.. I wouldn`t suggest doing that anymore either.. ♥Dez

Vanity answered Friday February 10 2006, 1:23 am:
The same thing happened to me when I used it on my legs.

You could either have had an allergic reaction to it or you used too much of it. Try it again with a spot test using less and see how that works out.

I've also learned that if I leave it on for a shorter amount of time on more sensitive areas, I don't have that reaction and it works the same (for me anyway)

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.

babiigirl answered Friday February 10 2006, 12:03 am:
its possible it could have burned you. Your supposed to do a sample test before you do your whole arm. Or maybe 4 minutes was too long.

betterthanyou_X3 answered Thursday February 9 2006, 10:47 pm:
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.

It's very possible. Nair can scar.
