Tried 10% Tca on Hands, Applied Several Layers and Kept for Too Long? (photo)

I am taking antibiotic and allergy med as prescribed by a dermatologist. The Browning occurred within one hour post application. How long will it take to heal? Do I have a chance of scarring? I have taken 9 days leave from office.

STOP self treating. You have a second degree burn chemical in nature. Start on Silvadene cream and get under the care of a doctor!
