Burning and Intolerance to Creams After Glycolic Peel, Normal?
I'm doing a homemade treatment of weekly glycolic peels (30%). The 1st 2 weeks I had no problems.The 3rd week I kept it for 12 mins (2 layers) & I started having acne breakout, but they told me it was norma.The 4th week I did 2 layers for 10 minutes..after a few days I started having a stinging/burning sensation and I can't use any cream (not even sunscreen) without having a reaction. I used clindamycin phophate once, could that be the cause? Or I have chemical burn? Should I stop the peels?
30% glycolic acid peel is NOT for home use
Don't self peel with glycolic 30%
