Thanks for the query.

This is quite common after getting a body wax done.

There may be two causes-
1.Severe irritant/allergic reaction to the wax
2.Chemical (non-infective) folliculitis.(inflammation of hair follicles of skin)

I would suggest you to continue using aloe vera gel 2-3 times daily. Also add Flucort-H cream once daily till the redness subsides (will take 4-5 days).

Avoid getting a full body wax done in the future.

Hope this was helpful. Feel free to ask any further questions if you have
