Treating a chemical burn from at home remedies
Hi,I'm sorry you have suffered a burn from the natural remedies. Remember, vinegar is acetic acid and likely added to the damage already created from the earlier treatments. I would try to see a board-certified dermatologist as soon as possible. Dermatologists have completed four years of additional training after medical school in order to become specialists in treating the hair, skin, and nails. He or she will likely recommend you avoid any oils at this point (you can develop allergies to them) and use gentle emollients and sun protection. If they are well trained in lasers, they may discuss using the pulsed dye laser once the skin is not open. Last, depending on your skin type, they may recommend a mild topical steroid or lightening cream to prevent darkening of the skin. When it's your face it's best to see a professional. Good luck!
