    Question Waxing??

    Hi all,
    I had heard that if you are on chemo you CANNOT get "waxed" (eyebrows, legs...) because your skin is too sensitive. I don't see my Dr. for another month and don't want to call and bother him with something like this, so I was hoping someone had some experience with waxing??
    Thanks!
    Deb H.

    Lip waxing was too stressful for my skin and I get herpe breakouts from them. Good luck with whatever you decide!!
    I am a strong person, but every now and then I also need someone to take my hand & say everything will be alright....

    Deb,I get my eyebrows waxed,but I'm only on pred. but I am pretty sure I did it when I was on ctx ? Your skin thins out so I guess you need to be careful.

    I get free waxings in the hospital when they change my dressings.

    I had no issues with waxing while receiving cytoxin infusions.

    lol.... I didn't see this post when my sweetie wrote it.... according to the date it was after 3 days in the hospital and yes, they did hurt him when they changed the dressings... but he was hero enough not to complain and to make jokes of it. I have some pictures of him while they change the dressing. but might be to tough to post them.... I might post them on his thread, not sure.....
    reading old posts of my sweet Phil.... missing him like crazy....

    I got a good chuckle from Phil's post. He's still giving us laughs.
