It's been 3-4 weeks now since the TCA 30% and my skin is still kind of red. There hasn't been much improvement after week 1. A week ago, I figured it might be a sunburn. I didn't use sunscreen because I'm never really exposed to the sun. Maybe 5 min. Of walking to the car - at most. I've been applying SPF 50 ( UVA 1,2 and UVB ), but it's still the same. I have not used anything exfoliating. I don't know how to get rid if this. I thought it would be all cleared up by now.
