Welcome and thanks for posting your query to HCM.
after waxing process is common problem but generally it remains for few hours only and for beyond two days. During waxing due to slight heat of the patch as well as due forceful plucking it causes redness or itching and bit pain for few hours but if the wax patch is slightly more hot or and the force applied is too harsh then can cause injury
to superficial skin and deeper hair roots leading to inflammation of the area remaining for longer period of time.
The very first thing you do is to give cold
compressions for multiple time a day, application of calamine
lotion to soothen the skin, can take antihistaminic drugs to relieve the feeling of itching and burning and not to touch the area repeatedly. If the redness is very high or there are any sign of mild vesciculation or blistering then should apply mild topical steroid
cream under medical guidance.
Kindly avoid direct sunlight for at least 5-7 days after proper healing to prevent any pigmentation of the area. Be careful nest time when you are doing waxing of any area.
With best health wishes,
