I would say, don't "over-think" these issues. As they say, "shit happens!" Sometimes there is no reason for "nothing!"

Remember, all this "stuff" is temporary and will go away.

And, be nice to Dee Dee ... or, I'm going to have to "get you!" ha ha ha

I think the PIH is likely temporary, although I'll have to wait another year at least to tell for sure.

The ingrown hairs are really the scary part.

Why under coverage?

BTW: i am using Bepanthol in a moisturizing cream, even during treatments.


Hi dear Beate, sorry, I missed your question.
The cover serves to keep moisture on the skin, in order to prevent crusting. The individual must apply the cream and keep the occluded area as long as possible during the first ten days or so. Especially at night because that's when the itch appears harder, and the risk of scratching involuntarily during sleep is higher too.
