Thanks for the query,

You have developed an allergic reaction.

It is possible that any cream or other product used during epilation caused you allergy.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

need to keep skin dry and clean no oily ointments and try to avoid creams and othr oily things
dont apply applicator as this will make skin hard
you can use antiallergic tab to reduce rash
and also clindamycin gel and calamine to apply locally for few days so the rash subside
non oily non greesy foods to be used with lot of warmwater to drink
