Chemical Burn And Skin Lightening from At-Home AHA Brazilian Peel. Is It Permanent?
I started using the at home AHA Brazilian Peel. After the 4th week, I developed a rash and dryness around the side of my mouth. I used extra moisturizer thinking it would go away and then eventually OTC hydrocortisone. I started to notice lighter skin tone as well as swelling around that same area. I'm assuming it's a chemical burn, but I'm wondering if the whitening of the skin will eventually go away (I'm also Asian, if that plays any role). I've already discontinued using the peel.
