A similar thing happened to me a few months ago, but it wasn't with ACV. I burned my skin with a salicylic acid peel. Don't worry it won't scar. Apply some hydrocortisone cream and 100% Aloe Vera. Within a week, your skin will feel normal again. There might still be some underlying redness but that will go away within a month.

Make sure to dilute ACV as it is pretty strong used neat. Only hardy skin types should consider using it like this. Make sure to use something like aloe vera or neosporin/sudocrem and keep skin well moisturised and it should go away over a few weeks or so.

The burn for me came up over night cause ihaave sensitive skni. You know what you get an itch and scratch yourself and there's like this light brown raw skin left cuse you took off the top layer? thats wht it looked like in the morning..but it's heling differntly right now. You can see this "marbelling effect" with these white lines, and now the skin looks soo fake and sooo red. I regret it soo much and i feel so ugly with it. i want my skin back. i hope it doesn't worsen.

that's the skin peeling...

tell you what, if you keep messing with it it's going to get worse. Just put on some neosporin or aloe vera and leave it alone for the week.

Hey there. I really feel for you as the same thing happened to me last summer, but I used regular vinegar on a cotton ball and applied it to a blemish on my cheek hoping it wold take down the swelling. Gosh i only held it there for a couple of minutes and was very shocked to see the end result. Red, raw, inflamed skin. I put polysporin cream/ointment and covered it with a bandage. If I didn't cover it, the darn thing would ooze. But once it was drying up I didn't cover it. Once the fresh skin grew over I was left with a slight indentation on my cheek. I purchased bioskincare cream (www.bioskincare.com) and within a week my severe redmark and indentation was gone. I was also taking collagen supplements that I picked up from the healthfood store. In the fall I was left with slight hyperpigmentatiion in the area and no amount of makeup would completely cover it up. I seeked IPL and one spot treatment was all that it needed. Almost a year later, one would never know something happened to me.

Zincofax cream would help as well, even a scar gel worked for me too. Goodluck

Just put a thin layer of aloe vera gel on it. It sounds like a first degree burn since there's no blisters or anything and first degree burns never scar. You'll be fine!

I used a blot of cotton, covered with tape, Then used an eye driopoer to put a few drops of apple cider vinegar twice a day for the purpose of removing some moles. I did this for 10 days. It did remove the moles but it burned the skin. I am using Triamcinolone on the burn, The scab and pinkness are slowly going away. Triamcinolone is a combination of neosporin and camomile lotion and is in a tube. It just takes time for the burns to go away. I took my patches off 5 days ago. I have no pain with the burns. I removed 3 moles on my right arm and one on my stomach.
