Hi Vani, Yes please tell me the medicines that you have already taken.
It is common to get boils during or after pregnancy as a result of immunological changes and the boils usually start subsiding after a month or so. But may get aggravated by waxing ( post waxing folliculitis). Also tell me the size of the poils- are they pin head sized or larger than the size of a pea?
As a precaution you may use fucibet cream twice daily for seven days after waxing.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Pregnancy is a vulnerable period where one in prone for infections, even though they are

Superficial/skin infections , it can get infected and lead to other problems.As waxing causes irritation to the hair follicles, folliculitis, being an infection of the hair follicles , it is better you avoid this procedure , instead you can go for other methods of hair removal using a cream which is not allergic to you , after doing a patch test only,if your doctor approves of it but as you already have some infection better to avoid this method also, as I feel every pregnancy is precious.

Wishing you good health.
