How to help a hydroquione burn?

I used a 4% hydroquione cream and it has made my skin go very red. It then started to peel off and I have been left with red sore patches. What can I do to help the redness go down and to heal my skin?

Hydroquinone and Irritation

If the hydroquinone irritated you I would suggest Aquaphor and possibly a mild cortisone cream with Vitamin C serum as well.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist for a consultation.  Best, Dr. Green
