Can you get waxed while on pred?

I am starting pred this week for a flare, and just realized I had a waxing appointment scheduled for next week. I know pred makes skin more sensitive/thin, so is it safe to get waxed while taking it or should i cancel my appointment?

Thanks.

Hellos,

No idea if this is going to be helpful at all to you, but i waxed while on Prednisone and didn't really feel a difference. It was equally as painful as it usually is. lol.... it wasn't even something i considered while on prednisone.

Good luck!

For waxing its recommended that you talk to your doctor about any concerns. http://hairremoval.about.com/od/waxi...x-warnings.htm I've never waxed before yet I've seen many members suggest/recommend waxing to other members about any unusual hair growth while on (and caused by) Prednisone. You have a lot of time until next week so give your doctor a call and let us know what they say.
