Is this normal after 50% Chemical peel? Went to an actual dermatologist office (Photos)

This reaction is severe and not normal. You need to make sure a physician looks at this and treats it immediately. If your dermatologist doesn't have someone covering for her, you could even see your primary care provider, or go to an urgent care center. I have a minor concern about possible herpes (the cold sore virus) here, although the distribution of the reaction is more consistent with a burn. I would protect the area with Aquaphor, but that is not enough and it needs the attention of a provider now to prevent scarring later.
