Possible irritation: You could have an irritant reaction. I would try over the counter cortisone first. If this does not work then you should see a doctor.

It will probably go : Away soon, if not see gynecologist. Don't use nair. Consider professional removal, or not. Pubic hair is coming back into style, anyway.
