I did a 40% peel on my face and neck. I knew something right away was wrong because the frosting was like snow covering my face and neck not frost. And the pain was excruciating..I left the tca on for about 90 seconds or less. The frosting lasted about a half hour then my skin turned maroonish/brown .I have light/olive skin. the next 12 hours some of my skin actually peeled and it was raw red underneath.I knew for sure I got a serious burn.I went to the hospital emergency room .I recieved a prescription of (Silver Sulfadiazine).first 10 days then added Bacitracin Zinc Ointment afterwards to moisterize and stop all infection that may happen.Anyways thank GOD after 4 weeks everything is back to normal..The skin looks just a little better.There is still a little pink skin in small areas .And now use sunscreen..IF you ever do a home TCA peel at home start 10% first and never ever go over 30%.Never drop tca in eyes you will go blind.

One thing I have to add the Bacitracin Zinc Ointment.I stopped using after 3 days because it was causing acne . It's base is petroleum jelly which clogs pores.So I just continued using the Silver Sulfadiazine and mixing it with 50% sunblock when gioing out into the sun.
