My Legs Look Beat Up

Guest DeeAnn

Recommended Posts

I like yard work and refinishing furniture, after a while my legs look beat the heck up, I see Gwomen out all the time with shorts on while doing yard work, etc. How do they keep from looking like the mower ran over them?

I get these little annoying red spots after waxing on my upper legs, below the knees is fine, so frustrating when i want to wear short shorts or a skirt. :blink:

I've been told that Eucalyptus oil is good for healing the ruptured hair follacles, and takes away the redness but I've havn't tried it yet, would anyone know if the Euc' oil or something similar out there works?

my girlfriend use a creme after waxing that smells very strong like Eucalyptus. I do not know if it helps or not. I get also red spots after waxing. But one day later they are gone. The request to the creme is that it must cool down the skin (Eucalyptus does) and it must prevent an invection (Eucalyptus does). We have something here cold tea tree oil. This tree is from australia. It is good for the skin. Maybe you can use it.

My girlfriend told me that there is a creme made in Israel for using after waxing. In Israel they are very good in waxing. She said that the creme helps the skin to recover and it is said that the creme will decrease hair growing if you use it every time you wax. I do not know if it is working well. I also do not know the name of it. Maybe you can go for a search.

Also if you wax more often, the pain decrease and teh total amount of hairs you remove per turn is smaller. So you get red spots but they are not so much.

On my chest I get really bad red spots. Nearly every spot will be a yellow pimpel after some days. That is no fun because I can not wear v-shape neckline with hair or with pimpels :angry:

If the red spots stay for a day or two, don't worry. It is just that your skin and the follicles have been very upset. Soothing cream will help, which one is up to you, some suggestions above should help.

If they do stay longer, it's a sign you'll be getting ingrown hairs!

There are several ways of dealing with that, first of all, you need look for a different way of getting rid of the hair. (I think I did read an excellent post about shaving here somewhere). Basically they are little infections, so far for me the most effective thing was an anti-biotic cream that my doctor gave me. (He's a darling!)

I do need to change the way of hair removal on my legs, since the skin is so thin (almost translucent) that it's nearly unavoidable to end up bleeding all over when I shave with blades. (No, it isn't related to my HRT, I had the same problem with my facial hair prior). Now I use a trimmer first (if they happen to be too long) and a thing that is ultra-fine "sanding paper". Alternating with hair removal cream. The "sanding paper" works great, but also takes a bit of (dead) skin along, so I have to watch out, hence the alternation between cream and this.

I'm not sure if it did cover your "beaten up" look, but I have noticed that blue marks, skin damage and little wounds take ages to heal on my legs, whereas for examply my hands heal almost twice as fast. I don't have an explanation for that, nor any suggestions. I did try echinacea in liquid form, which did help a little, but stinks like rotten plants!

Good luck,

      My endocrinologist refuses to give me progesterone. I'm considering going outside for it.

      Maybe it's TMI, but I can report that "my cups runneth over" from the recommended VA HRT regimen.

      There are health risks though. They can be mitigated, but let me share the best piece of advice I got from a doctor during my transition: "Be in the best shape of your life."   Best of luck and big hugs!

      The only way to get my head speeding around like crazy is with Benzodiazepines. Where I live it is easy to get, but I don't want it.   But my dysphoria only goes away with benzo's.     Help....???

      Umm bread is just how I like it. Brown thick crunchy crust.   hurricane has now made landfall the eye was about 25 miles south of us.  We have been in a period of light wind but that will pick up again as it gets further inland.  Tornado watches until late tonight.

      it's always good to see support for trans-students, by their peers. The part of this policy forcing outing students worries me.

      I'm helping my husband this week.  We're hauling electrical supplies and equipment to Florida to help communities get their infrastructure rebuilt.  Cities and electric companies typically have some spare things on hand, but little way to prepare for an epic disaster like this. My husband's company (and likely every other in the field) are going to be filling orders like crazy for a while.   We made our first delivery just after Ian went through.  I've never seen such a mess, even after a tornado.  No cell service and no fuel. Our convoy brought a service truck with tires and fuel along, and we needed every bit of it.  So much debris in the road.  I thought my husband was excessive having a snow plow mounted on the service truck but we wouldn't have gotten in without it.   And water.  Oh my.  As we got close we drove through water that was almost up to the doors of our trucks.     We've got our second load and we're preparing to head back.  Fort Myers this time.  I've heard that's the worst spot...

      Good afternoon    I have a loaf of rustic bread rising.  It will be ready to bake about mid afternoon.  We have plenty of eggs, TP, bread in the form of yeast and bread flour, a cake mix, brownie mix, cookies and the most important CHOCOLATE!  It’s getting closer but it’s not expected to be here for two more hours.  We’ve had some significant wind gusts but no damage.  I’m actually sitting on my porch.  I m protected by the building on all but one side.   I’ll let you know how my bread turns out.   Willow
