What can I do to quickly make the rash on my upper legs (related to waxing) go away?

I've waxed my legs for many years with no problems. Today I got my legs waxed (with an esthetician I've seen many times who is wonderful) and I noticed a few hours later that I have a rash on my upper leg.

The rash is on my upper leg, from a little above the knee up to the bikini line. It's red and bumpy and itchy and also there are some larger bumps that look like pretty bad bug bites. It's strange that the rash is worse on one leg than the other, which makes me think it might be more of an irritation to my jeans rubbing the skin rather than an allergy. Whatever the cause, I want to make this go away asap. I got waxed today in the first place because tomorrow I have a date with a new guy I've been hanging out with (we've already slept together once) and I was really excited to see him again. So, getting this rash right now sucks. Any advice on how to make my skin settle down to normal by tomorrow evening? I'm going to the drug store right now to ask if I should either take Benadryl or use Desitin (actually a diaper rash cream!) that my esthetician recommended when I called her just now. Anyone have any other suggestions?
