A WOMAN who suffered severe rash burns to her armpits and groin following a wax settled a €38,000 damages claim yesterday against a beauty salon owner.
Suzanne Kelly, of Broadway Drive, Clonsilla, Co Dublin, claimed she broke out in a painful rash which had swollen in the affected areas.
She sued Rosemary Duffy, who trades as So Belle beauty rooms in the Ashleigh Centre at Main Street, Castleknock, Co Dublin.
A full denial of negligence had been entered by the defence.
Ms Kelly said she suffered severe allergic, swollen rash symptoms to both the bikini and underarm areas after the waxing.
Ms Kelly's claim was to have been heard yesterday but her barrister told the Circuit Civil Court the case had been settled.
The judge adjourned the claim until November to facilitate implementation of the settlement, the amount of which was not disclosed in court.
