Pain and redness post procedure
Thanks for your question. Your symptons are not to be considered 'expected'. The breakdown of skin integrity in the photo you have posted could be the result of the laser treatments. It could also be a viral outbreak triggered by the procedures ( cold sore virus/oral herpes, or even varicella zoster virus/shingles. You should contact your provider, or another physician, immediately for evaluation and further treatment.Best,Lisa Vuich, MD
