what can a rash on the vagina after hair removal mean ?

I used hair removal cream on my vagina and first it was swollen then its burning on urination, looks like a rash on my vaginal lips and now I m seeing a rash on my butt. Is this a bad infection or could it be herpes? I didn t mention that right after I shaved I had sex with my husband before seeing the swelling. But before sex I was irritated.

It can be a skin reaction;but i suppose you might have been using the same cream regularly .If it is so the cream will no produce any skin allergy .Only it can be if your skin is cut or is having abrasion .You can take a anti allergic tablet or better consult a lady doctor close to your residence.take care .
