Used Glycolic Acid Peel and Have Red Raised Splotches; Are They Burns?
I bought a 35%glycolic 45% lactic acid peel to use at home. I used it a year ago,being cautious left in on for only 30 secs.My skin was exfoliated & smooth. used it again 2wks ago and left it on for 2mins... was a bit of stinging but no redness etc afterwards. Last night I applied it for 3mins & I have red raised irritated patches on my inner cheeks beside my nose and on the sides of my nostrils. Are these burns or a normal side effect. I am 34 and have a good fine skin. Is 2 wks apart 2 soon ?
