In brief: Brazilian waxing
This waxing problem is very common and it is probably a folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles) due to plugging up of these follicles.
Warm compresses to the area 3 or 4 times daily followed by the application of an antibiotic ointment like neosporin. If it doesn't get better, see a dermatologist. You may need an oral antibiotic.
