Two months ago, Josefa asked me to do a test with the Bepanthen cream. Here are the results with notes and pictures: https://imgur.com/a/LsxKX6H
Slathered that thing on half of the treated area as soon as I could after my electro session and kept it covered with an air-tight plastic for almost 20h (slept with it too).
Removed it after 20h and redness was more apparent on the creamed area. After a few minutes, it disappeared so I’m concluding it was because of the plastic (you can see redness where the plastic was and there was no electro nor cream there).
Came back from my treatment and kept it on for several hours until I went to bed, but didn’t sleep with it as I found it pretty annoying last night.
Kept it on during the entire day, but removed it before sleeping. I don’t see any difference, but it looks like the creamed area has a few more ‘’connected’’ redness patches (most probably randomness).
The red dots areas are from the first day’s treatment, and the more pinkish homogenous areas are from yesterday’s; interesting to see the healing stages.
No difference whatsoever, gonna stop using it now.
The only fault I could see in my test would be to not have left the cream/plastic on for the second and next nights, but in my defence, I’m pretty sure I put it longer (or at least just as long) than most ''normal'' people would have. And if someone is keeping it on non-stop for several days, I don’t see how convenient that would be because it’s starting to itch if kept for too long, plus applying, wiping and reapplying could get old pretty quickly…
I’d be interested in knowing what happens if a treated electro area was put under total air-tight insulation for several days, as I have a feeling the air might play a part in those scabby red dots. I would gladly do it right now if the feeling of plastic or cream wasn’t so damn annoying on my skin, so I’m hopeful someone else would take my place as Hairtell’s guinea pig!
Anyway, to conclude, just like every other ''healing'' creams I’ve tried, it had sadly no apparent effect.
