Hi! jovial,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
It seems you have developed a irritant reaction to VEET .You can use a topical steroid in combination with a antibiotic cream over the lesion .Also take a anti allergic tablet daily for few days till the lesions subsides completely.If the swelling doesn't go with this then consult a dermatologist who can prescribe you with oral steroids.

regards,
Dr.chawda
