A:   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.
Take care.
