Brown patch on skin after 30% TCA chemical peel. What's the cause? (Photo)

Are brown patches on skin normal a day after 30% tca chemical peel? Also, can they be caused by excercising after getting a chemcial peel?

Too high concentration

The concentration is too high, maybe wrong technique, maybe multicast, maybe poor after care, but most importantly your skin type is like mine, and I certainly would not be using a strength like 30% TCA. 

This will fade with time, and some HQ.
