Raw Skin After a Peel
Thank you for your question. Make sure you stop peeling off skin if you are still doing this. Go back and see your provider for their advice on how to care for this. In the mean time you can try Aquaphor on the area to protect it while it heals.
How should I treat my raw skin after salicylic acid peel?
YES! Best to return to have a follow up appointment. I might suggest Aquafor ointment as a early healing emollient...
Raw skin after salicylic acid peel
Never pull and remove skin layers - that is damaging. The skin will slough off as it needs to. You don't need to do it for it. Now that you have exposed, raw skin, you need to apply cool water and hydrocortisone to it, often. And keep sunscreen on it. Keep it moist and out of the sun!
