See a GYN MD: Unfortunately, you may have been "burned" by the Nair and a GYN MD needs to see the area to make sure that it is not secondarily infected. At that visit medication can be prescribed for pain and "burning".

Don't use Nair there: Rinse with cool water - and if this is your vagina that is involved - I agree with medical assessment.
