I am concerned of scarring I have fair European skin
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 12 days ago.

Ok in that case, you have chemical burn.

You will need to apply aloe vera gel first.

Then use Silver sulfadiazene ointment and dressing over the areas.

You will need to see your doctor also for further evaluation.

What is the first step to do
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 12 days ago.

I think you have a serious problem in hand.

You are better off going to hospital to avoid any serious infection.

You should apply ice and aloe gel in abundant amount meanwhile.
