Dear Nancy ,sometimes after waxing the hair root gets inflamed and lead to reaction like this.You need to see a skin specialist for this who can help you get away with this.Without proper examination please do not apply anything.When deeper layer skind gets involved this also can happen.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum !
This side effect of waxing is generally observed in people with wax and its product allergy. Allergic reactions may include severe skin rash to folliculitis.
you should take Ledum Pal 30, 6 pills TDS for a month it will help you.
Avoid sun exposure.
(If your skin sun burnt, infected, broken or irritated then also it is advisable to avoid waxing.)
Wish you good Health
