50% TCA Peel - Will Brownish Red Scabs Heal?

I did a 50% TCA peel on my face for acne scars and on my leg/hip area for stretch marks. I did 2 layers on all parts. My leg/hips have brownish red scab like marks on them and they are sore. I have done 3 peels in the past and had never had this happen. My face has two spots that have small red marks that are smooth and shiny. The red marks aren't terrible. I did these peels at the same time two days ago. I need to know if these are going to heal. I have been putting aloe on them.

Hello,

 

Chemical peels vary widely and are not recommended for the legs. I would have your doctor take a look and make sure things are OK.

 

Best Regards,

Do not treat yourself. Seek the advise of a professional doctor familiar with peels and complications
