I applied dettol on face days before yesterday and it has burnt my face leaving brown spots (as seen in the pics). I have been applying ice, silvadene cream, vitamin E cream on this, and my whole right cheek looks like roasted. I live in a different country from my family (in a dorm) so there is no one to take me to a doctor. Please tell me some home remedy that might help so that there would be no scars left.

Melaquin PM for skin discoloration from burns
If you had a minor burn to the skin, the best option would be to begin treatment with a topical skin lightener. In my practice, I recommend the Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM creams.
