I think glycolic/BP burned my skin. What else can I put on my cheeks to help heal them?

Hi, last week I used a glycolic acid cleanser and a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel. A day afterwards I started feeling a burning sensation on my cheeks. Now a week later I am still experiencing burning on my cheeks, my pores have enlarged and my skin looks very shiny. I think I have a chemical burn. :( I've been using manuka honey on my cheeks and it has helped a little but my cheeks are still irritated. My question is, what else can I put on my cheeks to help heal them? How soon will my skin heal?
