Problems shaving and waxing my legs

I used to shave my legs with no problems.  I then trained as a Beauty Therapist and since 1999 started to wax, I kept getting folliculitis.  I started shaving again but my legs bled terrible so much they didnt stop for upto 30 minutes. I started waxing again, I notice I have more than one hair growing out of the follicles it is so painful the hairs are very coarse.  My legs are never smooth as when you wax the hair sometimes breaks.  The last time I waxed I bled.  Please help, is there anything I can do to stop the dryness, ingrowing hairs and any way I can make the hairs less coarse.  So frustrating being in the job I am in too.  Would love to know an answer so that I can help others.  Thank you
