It can be due to folliculitis
or ingrown hair. Folliculitis and ingrown hair are common after hair removal
. If you still want to go in for waxing or shaving,then apply cold compresses(ice cubes wrapped in a towel) on the rash and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl
or claritin. You can also apply calamine
lotion on the rash. It will help in soothing the skin. A mild corticosteroid cream like dermacort will also help but it should be used only under medical supervision.
Also you can go in for laser hair removal which causes permanent reduction of hair and does not cause folliculitis also. Please consult a good cosmetologist/dermatologist
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist.
I hope that helps.
