Eyebrow threading removes eyebrow hairs, one at a time, with a thin thread that wraps around the base of the hair and pulls it out. The procedure originated in India and has become popular in the United States in recent years. Threading can result in small red bumps where hair was removed. Usually this is mild and disappears in just a few hours. If you have more sensitive skin, the irritation can last longer and require treatment to soothe the discomfort and redness.
Soak the tip of a cotton swab in witch hazel and gently wipe it over the affected area. This will clean your pores. Do not do this too vigorously -- you don't want cause further irritation.
Apply a small amount of aloe -- a drop approximately the size of a grain of rice -- to the irritated area. Use pure aloe instead of a lotion or gel that contains aloe. Perfumed lotions and ointments may clog pores and further irritate the area. Repeat this as needed for ongoing relief.
Apply a small amount of antibiotic ointment to any infected-looking areas. Bumps that are inflamed or oozing may be infected. If the skin does not improve or gets worse within 24 hours, contact a dermatologist for medical guidance.
