Garlic paste applied on warts on my face has reddened my cheeks and forhead.

I had applied garlic paste on the warts on my face and well, the places where I applied the paste has reddened. I think the garlic has burned the area. It doesn't burn or sting but it's dark red. After around 20 hours, I had applied ice cubes. Can anybody please help me remove these ugly marks on my face? I'd rather live with warts than with these burns. Please, I'm desperate. :((

I have treated many of these garlic burns. I would suggest a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase creams to help improve your scars.

Attempted wart removal- Burned face

Please post photos for further evaluation. If in fact the garlic did burn your skin, I suggest seeking a board certified dermatologist for wound care. There are many options for scar treatment which can be discussed with an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
