Powerful Home Remedies To Get Rid Of The Painful Red Bumps

Cucumbers: Cucumbers have both anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. Cutting cucumbers into thick slices and very gently rubbing these slices on your skin can give you a quick relief.

Applying ice cubes is not recommended, as this can shock your skin after it has been recently waxed. Repeat twice in a day, until the boils vanish for good!
Aloe Vera: If you have an aloe vera plant in your garden, then cut open a leaf. Use the gooey gel to soothe your skin. Ensure that you have washed the leaf well with plain water before cutting it open.
Don't have access to an aloe vera plant? Simply purchase pure aloe vera gel then applying a small quantity of this gel can work wonders. Refrain from using commercial brands of aloe vera products, such as skin creams to get rid of the skin boils after waxing. Repeat twice in a day, until your skin is not painful anymore.
Calendula: Calendula has strong antiseptic properties that can help soothe your skin. If you have a bottle of calendula tincture, then dilute it before use. 1 part of calendula tincture and 1 part of water is an ideal mix.
You can also get a calendula ointment from any homoeopathic pharmacy easily. Apply a very thin layer of the calendula ointment on the affected skin and let it dry completely. Repeat as and when needed.
