Needs evaluation: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Since it followed your bikini wax it may be an inflamed hair follicle

How long does hair need to be for a bikini wax and is it safe to do repeatedly?

Long enough...: ...For the wax to adhere to the hair shafts - which isn't very long - but the longer it is, the more hairs will be removed. Yes, it is safe to do repeatedly - but if you have a lot of hair and expect to be doing it frequently, consider going to a dermatologist (not a spa!) for laser hair removal, which is more or less permanent, and cheaper in the long run.

Depends: It truly depends on how you are feeling and what you want to do. A bikini wax removes the hair around your bikini line, while a brazilian wax removes all the hair.

Hydrocortisone: 1% hydrocortisone can help with the itching after a bikini wax. If there is an allergic component, the non-sedating antihistamines like zyrtec and allegra (fexofenadine) can also help. Hope you feel better fast.

Acne in pubic area, about 3 weeks ago I had a Brazilian bikini wax done and I noticed today that I have acne there. What can I do? Why does it happen?

Acne in pubic area, about 3 weeks ago I had a Brazilian bikini wax done and I noticed today that I have acne there. What can I do? Why does it happen?

Keep it clean: The "acne" may be in-grown hair. You need to let the hair grow out. Keep the pubic area clean and dry and you can wait it out. It would be a good idea to leave your pubic hair alone and let these be.
