In brief: Drain and culture

These are not uncommon.
Often time they need to be drained and cultured to determine exactly what is causing this. Treatment can then be focused and preventing or treating the specific cause. Warm compresses and good hygeine can also help, but see your doctor to discuss options.

Depends...sometimes shaving with a clean blade can be better than waxing. Consider laser hair removal. More costly up front, but may save time and money down the road....
