30% (3 Pass) Glycolic Peel - Boston, MA

I had a 30% glycolic peel (3 passes) done by an RN. 48 hours after the peel my faced became very swollen and the skin turned a yellowish (pus looking) and began to ooze.

The swelling is gone and most of the yellowish pus looking area has gone but now I see a somewhat wavy, bumpy reddish skin. It has now been 2 weeks.

Has anyone had this problem? Does the skin smooth out eventually or will I need to seek a dermatologist? Is what happened to me common with a 30% (3 pass) glycolic peel?

Name not provided

I was told ALL I experience is mild peeling...more of a shedding.
