    i haven't read thru this whole thing yet, but the best thing for a wax burn is burn cream!!!! hate to say it, but it will probably not clear up by this weekend. i've burned myself before, and it has to scab over before healing completely.
    i think you should demand that they open early for you.

      So sorry to hear this. I would suggest you call your photographer and explain ASAP. He/She wants you to be happy, relaxed and excited about the shoot. I would ask if you could change the date. Most photographers would want to work with their clients to make sure they are thrilled with the photos!

      Give them a call tomorrow!

          Oh No! This has happened to me they burned me really badly I hate to give you bad news but if it was as bad as mine was it may scab up. I would keep putting on neosporin, that just sucks I am so sorry and even more sorry that you have to explain to Dean it is not ok to say you don't look good, I am sure you are still beautiful! Maybe the photographer can work some magic.

              Wow, Nikki, that sucks! I would also make them open early for you, or have them send the makeup artist to your house for a house call.

              This happened to me once, but it was so long ago, I can't remember how long it took to heal. It was pretty bad though with the scabs.

              Also, keep in mind that photoshop works wonders!!! Just tell your photog so he is prepared.

                Oh no Nikki! I am SO SO sorry to hear this!

                I'd see if you can't reschedule your photo shoot. You won't be comfy and it will come thru in the photos.

                Good luck. Keep us posted!

                  Sorry to hear this Nikki, this happened to me a few years back before I went to PR to visit some family and being out in the sun made it worse! Definately put some burn cream on and see if you can re-schedule your appointment.

                    That has happened to me too but when I tried to do it myself! I am so sorry. I think for sure keep it moisturized with Neosporin that always seem to work wonders. Heck I would even tinker with the fact of asking someone to open the store early for you so you can come in just for the application...or ask for samples of the make up they were going to use on you to help hide the redness so you can do it yourself that morning.

                      Well, i keep putting neosporin on it. I have a call with the photographer in anhour to discuss alternative dates. Here is a picture I took before I came in this morning:
