Hi, I am a beauty therapist, and have been operating for 10 years, and in all this time i have never seen a case qiute like it.
I have been waxing a lady for years on her chin and lip, and only recently she has experienced a red sore area develop on her chin,1 hour after waxing, which is stingy, and sore. which then scabs over and 2 days later peels away.
I know this is not a burn, as my wax i use is tested before application, niether did my client say it was too hot.
It is not a tear of the skin, as i pull the skin tight, and never lift up with the wax strip. ( i am extremly careful)
The strangest thing is, i had this happen once, the second time it never appeared, and the 3 rd time it reappeared, but opposite side. (duration being 6 weeks apart from 1st to 3rd time as client comes every 3 weeks for waxing)
any ideas as to what this could be? I have asked about medication/skin peels, or exfoliation creams, she is not using any of these.
could it be hormonal?
