In brief: Ouch!

If you read your depilatory instructions they generally tell you not to use on "delicate skin" areas, and to avoid using for longer than the stated times.
You have chemically "burned" the skin surface, and treatment requires keeping the raw skin clean (basis, ivory, or cetaphil soap) and protected with emollient (preparation h or even vaseline jelly) until healed. If infected see an md promptly.
