Thanks for query,
The hair removal by wax has cause inflammation to your skin so the color is pink.
There are possibility that you may have allergy to wax.
Just wait for few more days.
Don't apply any thing on it.
Take anti allergic & anti inflammatory medicine.
Apply wax only after negative test dose.Always test wax on back of neck before applying.
