Salicylic acid pads gave me a small burn mark

I was using SA pads for too many consecutive days (perhaps a week), which oftentimes irritates my skin and then I stop using them for a while. This time though I noticed a small, burned sort of area on my forehead, about 5mm-1cm in diameter. It's relatively minor but it's noticeable as it is lighter colored and slightly pinkish compared to my surrounding brown skin.

Has anyone else gotten "burned" from SA pads, and how long does it take to resolve? The skin on that area was slightly sensitive and rough/keratinized for a few days, but that's gotten a bit better now. The texture still feels a little different, and it's noticeable in decent lighting and at medium distance so it's troubling me. Basically I am seeing this as a minor chemical burn from splashing too much acid on my face.

In short, how long til it's gone?
