Switch Electrolysis specialists and see if that helps

I wouldn’t even touch the area after treatment with your unwashed fingers for that day (if possible). So putting anything on your treated skin could definitely cause issues especially if this is the 2nd electrologist you have used and the reaction is the same.

If I even touch some of my treated area after electrolysis with my fingers, I will break out the next day and takes like a week for the pimples to go away.

If a client thinks they are going to absentmindedly touch the area post treatment, then i usually send them home with a pair of gloves.

Any updates idgv123? Your reactions look just like mine and I’m wondering if you have found anything to help? Also wondering how your progress has gone in treatment after all these months!

Hate to be that guy but isn't that the normal skin reaction expected? I wish I had that little of a reaction after a treatment so it's all about perspective I guess (please read without a patronizing tone lol).

This is not true! If it does not contain lye it can't even legally be called soap in the US. On the label it might say "saponified oils of..." or "sodium palmate" etc as opposed to listing lye or sodium hydroxide but you cannot have soap without lye.

I still buy Grandma's Lye Soap for making a paste to apply to poison ivy or bug bites. Works well.
