Today, I had my back waxed to deal with the uncontrollable hair growth. Afterwards, I broke out in numerous pimples where the hair used to be. Basically, a lose-lose situation. FML

17- thats hard to do though.

Ydi for waxing your back. Real men have hair. God gave it to us for a reason

Why did you kill that poor deer !? ^ ;,(

because real men can also kill for food :).

It's ok, OP! I had some hair waxed too. I broke out as well. It's probably normal. I'm sure your acne is much worse than mine, though. My facial hair was waxed. Which reminds me of an FML where a 19-year-old girl had facial hair. I'm a 15-year-old girl with facial hair >.>

What's the reason for back hair, then? And why don't women have so much hair?

At least someone has it right. Hunting, hair and beer!

94, try taking an anatomy & physiology class

#34, sorry, but back hair is gross. I'd shave it if i were him too.

Reminds me of 40 year old virgin, just without Steve Carell and all the pimples. Srry Op :)

cant tell you how many people used that reference when. I told them I was getting it done

It's not like anyone sees your back. YOU SHOULD GRAB A KNIFE AND SLICE YOUR PIMPLES OFF WHILE YOU COLLECT LICK YOUR BACK CLEAN OF BLOOD. Or maybe just see a dermatologist.

In my excitement I slurred my sentence. Take out collect.

Yes, tell OP to lick his back cuz its so possible to do. It's not like it's disgusting to lick blood off ur own back! PSHH!

Just get proactiv and a long-handled loofa brush for scrubbing it in. And speak to the salon about using a different wax or after cream/oil. I commend you for the hair removal!

even if he did get proactive, it'd be hard to reach his back! :D

Proactive would actually make it worse. Proactive is strong, and meant for chronic acne problems, not a one-time breakout from waxing. And the reaction is more likely due to being waxed, rather than the wax itself (although I highly suggest finding a salon that uses a hard, stripless wax that uses natural ingredients like beeswax. Not only is it less painful but it doesn't take off that top layer of skin like soft, strip wax does). This is actually a normal reaction, especially for someone who has never waxed before. It doesn't happen to everyone, but it can happen. Use cortisone cream to help clear up the reaction. The OP also needs an ingrown hair serum or tea-tree oil. You're a candidate for ingrown hairs if you've never waxed before, and they can often look like a breakout. OP also needs a good exfoliant. I actually suggest using a fruit based one (pineapple enzymes are a fantastic exfoliant). The long and short of it: you exposed follicles that have never been exposed and your body is reacting (in a sense, trying to protect). I highly suggest making sure you to to a reputable salon if you get waxed again - make sure the waxer is a licensed esthetician (never go to a nail salon for waxing!). Also, make sure they never double-dip or reuse/refilter their wax. No matter what they tell you, you CANNOT heat wax high enough to kill anything that may contaminated it (bacteria, viruses, etc. And yes. That can and has happened...).

when the pimples go away you'll look mighty dandy!

I Hear People Who Use Pictures Of Abs As Profile Pics Are Either Fat And A Loser Or Is A Douche With Abs .

I think he's implying that it's a fake picture.

Well, I hear that people who can't manage to put together a proper sentence are dumb. So forgive me for really not caring about your overly capitalized, grammatically incorrect, and unnecessarily rude opinions.

30, maybe he has a weird face.. :D

39- we have so much in common! because when I get on semi-anonymous threads I like to defend kids who I'll never ever meet. it makes me feel like some kind of super hero and i named myself cyber-protector. TWINZZZZZ

I hear people who have Flamewars over nothing win the internet...

he's 14, ok? it's normal and healthy to be a little douche-like at 14.

Tell people you are a troubled teenage werewolf and see what happens

well, yeah it happens. but only at first. the next time u wax, there won't be as much "pimples". I think they're just your pores. without the hair, those germs enter, and swell, making it look like a pimple. but don't worry about it :) next time, apply cooling cream or put a damp towel on your back :)

thanks for the advice I'm glad my FML moment got posted it just sucks it had to be this lol

I wonder if thats what Chewbacca would look like if we waxed him(: ahaha XD

Imagining the sound Chewbacca would make if one was to rip wax off of him.. just made my day.

It's worst if you do it on your groin. Not that I have or anything *shifty eyes*

Do you think a woman wants a mouth full of pubes when she's going down on you?

Check it out, one of the only men in the world who understand a mouth full of hair is not a good kind of gag.

43- Actually my pubes burned to death due to a house fire when my electric razor malfunctioned! I could do nothing to help them, thanks alot you heartless dick :'(
