Rash after hair removal. It's usually caused by inflammation. Inflammation typically goes away on its own without treatment. If you have white or fluid-bumps that last more than a few days, your folliculitis may be the result of a mild infection. It can b a Allergic contact dermatitis associated with folliculitis. Consult a Dermatologist for the same to prevent further progression of the lesions and corroborate with pictures.
