Hydroquinone Caused Redness

I think I put way too much hydroquinone 4% on my face, and now where I put the spots there are now bright red spots, making my PIH red/brown marks wayy worse. The pics are approx 36 hours after application

How long does this redness last?

What can I do to help it go away faster?

My face seriously looks way worse than before, but I know this is temporary and in the long term this will probably help, but Im stopping the hydroquinone and sticking to Dan's AHA+.


Im seriously freaking out, I skipped all my classes today, am so afraid to go out in public like this! help!!

What can I do to help get it off faster? I noticed that not everywhere was both hydroquinone ++ BP, and yet the redness seems indiscriminate of where I put BP, it seems to be everywhere that I put the hydroquinone.

I am experiencing the exact same thing right now. I was wondering if the redness has subsided yet? And if it did how long did it take? I am worried that they are permanent! :(
