Red bumps on waxing body
I have a hairy back n stomach. So waxing is the only option I have for clearing the hair. However, everytime after waxing i develop many small red bumps on my back and stomach which stay for atleast 20-30 days. So I have to enquire What options are available other than waxing? What are the red humps due to n how do i treat them?

Hey, I believe I have already answered your query in the private chat :) The red bumps are most likely perifollicular irritation. Instead of waxing you could opt for laser hair reduction. The tugging of the hair while waxing , especially in the opposite direction , causes irritation.  For the red bumps (if you have them at present) treatment will be needed.
Next Steps
Visit an allopathic dermatologist near you. Before you choose your dermatologist read this http://www.skinmatra.com/single-post/2016/07/03/skin-troubles-here-is-what-not-to-do
