Benzoyl Peroxide 10% burned my face

Recommended Posts

IMG_7622.JPGHelp! I had two pimples on my cheek and stupidly decided to pop them. Then i put benzoyl peroxide on it and left it overnight and now in addition to two dark spots/scans there is a faint brownish line connecting them in thinking it is because i burned my skin from the BP. I have one thing in 5 days is there any at i can get rid of this?!

You should never apply BP to broken skin, but I use the same percentage and have never gotten burned before. Apply a non-medicated moisturizer and let it be for a couple days and it should go away. Once it begins healing you can exfoliate to help with the discoloration.
