Hi there,I am an experienced Medical Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I am sorry to hear that.
You should wash your face well with soap water to remove glycolic acid completely--you are likely allergic to it.
You can apply a thin layer of hydrocortisone 1% ointment to reduce the burning and redness.
You may need to apply every 8 hours for next 2-3 days.
Once the burning subsides, you may resume using retinoic acid.
Aloe vera gel is natural option which can be applied to help with the burning and redness.

Yes that should be ok.
No you do not need to.
Ok in that case, you should contact your doctor for a prescription.
