Our expert says:
You may indeed be allergic to something that is applied to the skin. One or two examples-nickel in costume jewellery, adhesives, preservatives, chromates, plants, dyes, fragrances. I do not think that waxing made the pores more sensitive, but it is certainly an innovative thought! I am, like you, more concerned about something in the depilatory cream. You should have an allergy test. It is called a patch test and is performed by most dermatologists. A blood test is not really worthwhile. Do you suffer form asthma/hay fever? Such persons tend to develop skin allergies.
