If you are used to using hair removal creams, you may also experience allergic symptoms. Dermatologists recommend that the skin and equipment should be cleaned well before hair removal. Xu Zhongyao, an attending physician in the Department of Dermatology of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Linkou, said that plucking and shaving are relatively common methods, but both may cause hair follicle damage. Pulling hair is easy to cause wounds due to pulling the hair follicles. If the utensils, skin, and whatsapp database hands are not cleaned, as long as there are places that are not cleaned, bacteria may invade and cause inflammation. Shaving is similar, except that it is easy to pull hair follicles, and the more fragile skin is easily thinned by the friction of the blade, which may be prone to injury. Xu Zhongyao also said that when bacteria invade the hair follicles and cause inflammation, red bumps similar to pimples will appear on the skin, which should be eliminated by seeking medical attention as soon as possible. However, special attention should be paid to inflamed hair follicles or wounds on the skin, which may cause melanin precipitation and accumulation, and the wound site may look dull. Although the melanin will gradually dissipate over time, most of it will not be a long-term accumulation of melanin, but whether you use a hair clipper or a razor, you should be very careful to clean it. On the other hand, Xu Zhongyao added that some people will use hair removal creams for large areas of hair removal, such as legs or arms. Depilatory cream is a slightly acidic substance, which can decompose hair protein, so that body hair can be detached, and body hair will grow back after a period of time. However, special attention should be paid to the fact that chemicals contacting the skin may cause allergies. It is best to wipe the hair cream to test whether it will be allergic to a small area. Do not use it on a large scale if the skin is abnormal. In the "Drug and Food Safety Weekly", the Food and Drug Administration of the Ministry of Health and Welfare invited Zhao Zhaoming, director of the dermatology clinic, to also talk about hair removal related topics. Zhao Zhaoming said that the amount of hair often affects self-confidence.
