10 days post cosmelan mask and 3 day on cosmelan 2 and redness and peeling still happening, when will this settle?

I did the mask 10 days ago, left it for 8 hours and woke up next morning with a very red and swollen face, 2 days later it started peeling and stopped after 3 days. I was told to start using cosmelan 2 once at night on day 7 which I have started doing 3 days ago. since then redness and peeling have resumed. I am getting abit worried that this redness won't subside for weeks and I am due back to work in 2 weeks. How long before redness is over and skin is bright again?
