Splotchiness after Glycolic Acid???

Recommended Posts

So, I used this 40% glycolic acid on my face, specifically on a red mark above my lip that has been annoying me a lot. Unfortunately I think some of the glycolic acid got on my lips and now part of my lip line looks a little splotchy. It looks as if little splotches that are the same color as my skin are now going slightly into my lip line, causing them to be sort of uneven. I've never heard of this happening and am not sure what these splotches are. I'm worried that they wont go away... I guess for them to "go away" they would have to turn from whitish to redish again, to match my lips of course. Bleh.... I doubt anyone has any advice but I wanted to give this a shot.

just give it time and apply a antiseptic healing ointment like neosporin or savlon (in UK). That should help. I doubt anything permanent has occured, so dont panic! ;)
