Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
Sometimes, waxing or threading leads to waxing induced or thread induced folliculitis.
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.
