post wax ingrown hairs

I recently waxed my chest for the second time with an at home waxing kit. The first time I ended up with ugly ingrown hairs (at least what i assume were ingrown hairs) on my upper chest. I tried to wax for a second time about two weeks ago and once again, red unsightly bumps have appeared on my upper chest. I also only get them on my upper chest and not on my stomach where a lot of hair was also removed. No bumps were visible for the first week and a half. They appear to be hard red bumps, some of which show a slightly white head, however none of them show a visible hair in which I can pull out. What would one suggest to treat these? prevent them?
I have also been exfoliating with a loofa almost everyday since the waxing.
Thank you very much, any help is greatly appreciated. These things are driving me crazy
