Seek dermatology care
Please see a Dermatologist as soon as you can; you will need detailed and specific wound care to help minimize scarring and pigmentation problems from the peel. A 50% TCA is a high concentration peel; I do not advise using such a high strength without the close supervision of an experienced physician. The dark brown skin in your photos will likely peel in the next few days, but you will need a Dermatologist's help to prevent/ treat pigment and scarring problems.
