Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.Sometimes, waxing or threading leads to waxing induced or thread induced folliculit is.It is the inflammation of a hair follicle without infection. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical antibiotic cream followed by a combination of topical antibiotic and steroidal cream.It usually resolves within 1-2 weeks.Visit your Doctor so that he can examine you and give you a prescription accordingly.You can share my opinion with him.I hope it helps.Take care.
