Help!!! Waxing Irritation

I've recently waxed my eyebrows last week for the first time and after the swelling went down now I'm left with these bumps on my eyebrow line that won't go away. What to do, what will help it go away? Ice doesn't help.

Hi,

Waxing is currently the most popular form of hair removal. It is observed that many people develop irritation and redness of skin soon after waxing. By keeping your skin cool with soothing lotion or aloe vera gel minimizes these effects.  Take care and keep us posted.

i'm guessing your skin is sensitive like mine, and whose wouldn't be from getting hair ripped out from the root?? don't panic, your skin is just irritated and dry from the wax. it'll go away
