How Do I Get Rid of a Selsun Blue-caused Chemical Burn on my Face? The Skin is Red, and Obviously Burnt.

I used the product for a tinea versicolor spot, as prescribed by my doctor. However, I forgot to wash it off last night and woke up with a burn this morning.

Irritant Reaction:

1% hydrocortisone ointment (OTC) 2-3x/day for 3-4 days, gentle soap like Dove, avoid excessive sun, would expect recovery within 4-7 days... if not then be seen by a dermatologist
