    May I have a brazilian waxing in my situation?
    airair posted:
    I have seborrhoeic dermatitis on my vulva (small area, like the size of nail), which is not always there, but comes and goes. It's not serious, just presents every two months and then disapears in two days after I put "hydrocortison butyrate cream" on it. Now I want to have a "brazilian waxing" (all-hair-off waxing on bikini part). So I wander if it is ok for me?
    airair responded:
    Could anyone give me some suggestion?
    Thanks much,

    Hi Airair -

    Unfortunately I could not find any information specific to waxing and seborrhoeic dermatitis.

    Please contact a few different dermatologists or laser providers in your area if they have ever treated anyone with this condition and find out their experience.
