i am on day...11 of the my procedure... swelling has gone down..heat has subsided some. i give myself vinegar soaks twice a day it has helped. However i am still very red. I have a skin medica cream also...makes me redder. Now i am just letting air get to it (no lotion.) it feels like it is healing faster. I am still peelling some. It is possible i may have to take another week of work. I am hoping makeup is going to cover the redness.
