Whit can I do about cracked skin that is now raw after my vi-peel?

VI Peel side effects
Your VI Peel side effects are normal, so hang in there! It is common for the post-peel protectant to sting for a minute or so after you use it, and the company recommends that you continue to use it despite this. The cortisone in the cream prevents inflammatory reactions to the peel which can create brown spots. I recommend Aquaphor or Eucerin for the dry, sensitive or cracking areas that occur. You can be generous with it, and it makes it feel better! Don't use anything with perfume or fragrance in it. Enjoy the results of your peel! When the peeling stops your skin will look great!
Everything you describe is normal after Vi Peel. Keep using your aftercare kit products and hang in there. Soon enough you will be seeing your results. Good luck!
