You could lose more than just hair from waxing!

Before I removed a guy's underwear, he asked me whether I mind that he did not get a wax. He was quite clean-shaven so I didn't mind at all. Anyway, waxing shouldn't be a pre-requisite. Do you know that you can lose a leg or die after a wax? No, I'm speaking in the literal sense. You can really die from it!

According to Women's Health,
- one woman developed a fever and pain in her thigh after waxing. She was diagnosed with cellulitis, a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection of the skin and the underlying tissue. She was on an IV drip with antibiotics and painkillers for 15 days and had surgery to drain the infection. She doctor said she could have lost her leg.
- two women in New Jersey, USA landed in the hospital after waxing.
- an Australian woman with type 1 diabetes almost died of a bacterial infection after waxing.

It seems waxing removes the protective layer of skin and therefore bacteria can enter the body more easily. It is not advisable for people with diabetes, chronic kidney or liver disease, skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, or weakened immune systems to go for waxing.

If you could lose your leg, I suppose you could lose your penis (commonly referred to as the third leg). So if your partner has been asking you to get waxed but you have a low pain threshold or are too shy to let someone else see your privates, this is the perfect reason why you shouldn't have to go!

Correct, waxing does not remove hair permanently. Even laser hair removal didn't work for me.
