Deep chemical peels will have more downtime and the skin should be protected with Polysporin or other post peel ointment. With these peels no make up should be applied until the skin has calmed down and started healing. This is to avoid causing an infection to the treated area. It is important you visit your plastic surgeon for a physical examination of your concern.

 You might want to go back and see the plastic and cosmetic surgeon that did your chemical peel for evaluation and possible treatment.
