Was waxing around my perianal area and ripped part of it open. Why didn't anyone warn me?

In brief: Don't worry

As you have unfortunately found out, the skin in that area is delicate.
The good news is that it will heal with the proper care. Keep area clean and dry. Wash with warm water regularly and use moist wipes. Monitor for infection: redness, increased pain, discharge, fever. If not healing well, then see your pcp.
