Hi Tanya, thank you for the question.
Your best option would be to consult a dermatologist when the rash is visible so that he or she may examine the skin rash and decide on the best treatment options.
From your description this may be a type of folliculitis (infection of the follicles due to ingrown hairs) or a reactive allergic type rash.
I would consider any of the depilatory (hair removal) creams on the market today and I would add an over the counter steroid cream and anti bacterial cream but if the rash persists I strongly recommend consulting with a dermatologist.
