Please Help Garlic Burned My Skin

Recommended Posts

Hello,
12 days ago, I applied raw garlic on my forehead for 3 days ( once in a day) ( a size of cent area) and then it burned the skin and then in few days it peeled the skin and now there is dark patch at places where I applied garlic,

As now the area has healed completely.I am very worried about the dark patch,

question 1 - how long the dark patch will take to return to normal color?
question 2 - what are home remedies I can do for removing that dark scar?

THank you very much

Yikes! what made you decide to put garlic on your skin?
If you have a derm, I'd definitely talk to them about it so you don't cause further damage.

Does the dark skin feel like regular skin or is it kind of tight? Because from my experience whenever I accidentally burned my skin, the "darker" patch would eventually peel off too revealing pinkish skin underneath. You could apply something like aloe vera or emu oil or neosporin on it and hopefully that darker bit will come off.

thanks a lot for replying,

The darker bit has come off but now there is dark marks on the skin after peeling of skin and exposure of pinkish skin, this is new skin which came up , this is the image *after the dark peels came from skin*, (Because of that wound mark I used garlic paste on it ( my bad)

Wow! I would definitely apply ointment like polisporin to it, a and do your best to leave it alone. Unfortunately, that might scar, but healing ointment will help.

no, it wont scar, I consulted with two different Skin specialists and both said that it wont scar and it will take time around one month to scar to go away, they said to use sunscreen whenever I go outside.

Thanks for support.

Please be careful with your skin. Treat it with the utmost care and always do your research when trying unconventional methods because its not worth the gamble of long term skin damage. Apply some polysporin or neosporin to the area.

Hello,

1 DOnt get exposure to sunlight otherwise it WILL STAY FOREVER, use SPF if sunlight is un-avoidable

2 Massage twice a day with vitamin E oil

3. WAIT FOR ATLEAST 5 MONTHS THEN ONLY IT WILL GET BACK NORMAL TO YOUR SKIN COLOR.

Hi,

My child is 3 yrs old,2 months back she had pimples on her nose. Someone has advised me to put garlic on it. When she wakes up in morning I found burnt on that area. I went to pediatrics she advised me ointment for same. After few days it darkens,pink skin appears, later it turns to thin layer of skin which was white in colour so I have wait for few days for recovering into original skin colour. But it's 2 months now still I found white patch on her nose. Kindly advise me what to do? Coz still it's not recovering to original skin.????

@Sangita_15 You caused a burn on your child's nose with Garlic. Healing is taking a long time. Please go see a dermatologist or her pediatrician. A child's skin you don't want to mess around with. Aloe is healing try that, other healing things are comfrey and calendula.
