In brief: Unlikely

If you are allergic to waxing it may give you hives but not eczema.
Mostlikely it is irritating to your skin and you should consider laser hair removal or tweezing instead.

In brief: Possibly

Waxing is irritating to your skin and this can lead to a facial dermatitis in sensitive individuals.
You should consider laser hair removal or tweezing instead or just not waxing.
