Hi
You seem to be having folliculitis post waxing. The chest and back hairs have large oil glands associated with them. Any treatment in this area can cause a break out. Please use a salicylic acid body wash twice a day. A dermatologist may prescribe a short course of anti acne antibiotics to help. Avoid future waxing.  Bleaching or laser hair removal may be better options
