I had chemical lactic peeling two days ago. What should I use: Aquaphor or Momate on my sore areas? I'm really confused

Burn after lactic peel
In small doses, Momate is safe as it will help the burn to heal faster , but if you have sensitive skin you can use aquaphor which is petroleum based and not as harsh as the steroid .
Remember to use Sunscreen atleast thrice daily to avoid developing post inflammatory hyperpigmentation .
hope this helps
Chemical Peel and after care
It is very important that you use aquaphor or something emollient after your chemical peel and avoid the sun as well. Your physician should have given you the proper instructions after your peel. Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
