I am sorry that you have skin injuries from your laser treatment. It is very important for you to see a dermatologist or other wound care specialist for proper wound care. Aquaphor Healing Ointment is usually a good product to start with for a laser injury. See a specialist for in person evaluation and a specific treatment plan.
