are you sure you had tca cross, or simply a peel?

i was instructed to apply polysporin, which prevents infection, supposedly speeds recovery, and moisturizes the skin, it is not really necessary, but if you decide to apply it, you only need to do it for the first day or two and not after your skin starts scabbing

everyone heals different, perhaps in your case your skin takes longer to scab, or perhaps it doesn't scab altogether

the tca damaged your skin in order to stimulate it to produce collagen, so it's not surprising that the scars look worse

wait at least a week to 2 weeks, i'm sure by then it'll look better

I think they are staring to scab in the scar area because it takes up the scar it look more noticeable I think,

the Dr said a couple of days for scabs to be off and back to normal, I was pushing out inside my mouth with my toungue to help it raise but then i thought it could make it bigger by strethcing it ??

6 times you say how often did you go, got the next 1 in 3 months time

just dont wash your face so hard that the scabs fall off

also, dont use acids or cleansers on your scabs as those would destroy the scabs

the scabs are good, keep them on your face for as long as possible
