Laser resurfacing not healing: what to do?
From the photograph, the picture is most consistent with contact dermatitis due to an allergic reaction to the antiscarring treatment or another cream that she using. I would stop all treatment other than a moisturizer. A treatment with minimal chance for reaction such as A & D ointment used for diaper rash is what I have patients use after laser resurfacing. The skin is more sensitive, and can react to things like makeup that never caused the patient problems before. However, to give a definitive answer, an in person consultation is important.
