I recently applied a 25% TCA peel, and feel like I went too deep for some parts of my face on near my cheeks. I am halfway through my peel with my forehead to go, but I have very red parts of my face I feel went too deep. I have put ointment on these parts which makes it feel better. Will this go away after a few days, or did I make a mistake?
Can You Go Too Deep with a Peel?

TCA peel depth
This strength TCA should only be used by a trained physician. Even a much lower strength TCA can cause a very deep peel depending on the type and thickness of skin and how it is applied.
That is too high a concentration for you to be doing yourself at home. Please seek a professional to do your TCA peels before you have irreversible results.
