scars left from baking soda water paste

well so i decided to use the baking soda water paste as I heard it worked for many people. so after using it.. my face began to get puffy like develop hives... then the next morning.. the puffiness went away but then i guess it looks like i burned my face because there are these dark reddish brown spots and its like i broke out even more so i even really dry skin now and these dark reddish marks which i think look like scars.. so i was wondering.. does anyone have advice on how to fix the damage caused by the baking soda water? im never doing that again... any help or advice is appreciated..

Those aren't scars; they're just irritated spots. They'll go away with time.

Cleanse with a gentle cleanser of the proper pH; try Cetaphil or Purpose. Cleanse only once or twice a day.

Massage a small amount of petrolatum jelly on your whole face nightly for a few days. The petrolatum will soothe your annoyed skin.

Moved to red marks left after acne. This thread fits there much better.
