Ugh I'm SO upset. I did a PCA peel and I'm having some ridiculous reaction. I have a TON of small bumps all over my face and I'm soo red. I've done this peel before but I didn't keep it on for the full 24 hours and it was fine. This time I left it on overnight and when I woke up I was so red and now it feels like I have a terrible blistering sunburn. I'm so mad I did this to myself, my skin was perfectly fine (at last) before doubt.gif It's not even really peeling which sucks and was the whole reason I did this. And of course I have plans today and work and classes all next week. Has anyone had this before? What should I dooo... eusa_boohoo.gif
Morning:Cerave foaming face wash in shower. Moisturize with Cerave/ derm cream samples. Pur Minerals foundation, original formula.
Night: Cerave face wash and Clarisonic every 3 days or so for exfoliation.
Internally: 40mg of Accutane started 3/16/13! 80mg started 4/15...DONE 8/19/13! OTC bcp blaahhh:/ Try to eat as healthy as I can and balance stress levels.
Please let it stay!

Why did you have a peel if your skin was fine?

I have a little hyperpigmentation and a few red marks I was hoping to lighten but ugh now I have all new problems. I'm not sure how to post a pic on here, I guess it kinda looks like my face has goosebumps everywhere and I'm only peeling around my mouth. I took some allergy meds and advil to maybe calm the swelling. I might put on some cortizone cream tonight

I hope by the week mark it'll look alot better. It's sp hard to imagine how this is ever going to heal properly. Luckily alot of the skin peeled off in the shower and it's just red and raw feeling
