Ingrown hair + pustules

Hi VPers!

It seems like I've been spamming the community lately :| I'm sorry for that.

Anyway, I have two sore pustules associated with ingrown hair, in two different areas of my body. Since the areas get different sorts of treatment, I'm talking about them in separate.

Problem #1:

It's on my bikini wax area.

I am not new to the technique, and I have never had any problem before. I did it in a different clinic this time because it was rather urgent, and in a day my usual clinic doesn't open. My skin was pretty well that day, and I did everything I was supposed to do in terms of aftercare. I think I might've done something wrong, though, as a few days after I noticed a bump in my skin, which I recognized as an ingrown hair and a pustule. Even though I knew I shouldn't I tried to poke at it, and now I have a pretty sore and bigger pustule covered with a very thin, almost inexistent scab, and it's leaking a sticky, translucid liquid. It's a bit painful... and ugly, which I honestly think is worse :\

Problem #2:

It's on one of my armpits. I don't get this area waxed, I use a lamina at home instead. A few days ago, I noticed a small, white-head pustule on my armpit, and I... well, I poke at it. It was very difficult to make the skin break to let the content of the pustule out. There was an ingrown hair there too, but I didn't manage to solve any of the problems. I still have an ingrown hair there, and now I have a sore spot which might turn into another pustule, and which is also leaking a a sticky, translucid liquid.


I'm despairing quite a bit about it, especially since I'm leaving for England in the end of the month and I obviously want to be all pretty by then.

Any advice would be muchly appreciated.
