It will probably go away after an hour or so, depending on how bad it is. If it's not gone by this time tomorrow then go to a doctor. It might help if you take a cool, damp washcloth or paper towel and lay down with it over your face for awhile.

Yes it is. I got it confused with the soap bottle, and apparently remnants of it got left on overnight.

First degree burns next day. Fun.

I've had it since yesterday morning. Or two days ago, since it's 1:40 AM.

Well, the burns happened the same day as picture day at my school.

Well in that case, I highly recommend you go to a real doctor. I doubt there's any better advice that anyone in the pit can give you. Good luck.

Kind of. It's a little worse.

Nope, I have black streaks and burns all around my face.

it's not that it's not clearing up. It's peeling like a sunburn would, and it's just red underneath. I'm wondering when the skin will just peel completely and the redness will stop.

Er, yeah. Doctor, pronto.

Oh. Well then... I can't help you on a time frame. Sorry. Maybe a week at most?

Oh. Don't worry, they'll go away within minutes. Don't bother seeking proper medical attention, because that's just stupid

I can probably show you better than I can tell you. Phonecam pictures coming up through Photobucket in like two minutes.

EDIT: This was 8% benzoyl peroxide, by the way.

Go to imageshack.us
If you really want to show some pics, it's free and works fine.

I'm still trying. The only pic I'm able to upload makes it look a bit more mild than it is. And I'm not this ugly. But:

It looks like its healing.... I doubt you'll have any problems... but then again.... this is the freakin pit... go see a real doctor...

"When applied to skin benzoyl peroxide has been shown to induce cancer" -Wikipedia

Ur gonna get cancer... of the face!

Edit: v I did read that on wikipedia too, in fact, it ended the sentence just above. I was highlighting the importance of not trusting the pit with your medical problems. :)

Cancer is only a chance at PURE form, 100% unconcentrated. Give it a few days to regrow some skin, and the colour will come back to normal.

It doesn't matter what percentage it is at, there's still going to be a chance.

itll probably not last too long, i got a very cioncetrated Silver Nitrate solution (AgNO3), which stained my skin black, and after ive seen that it was gone pretty much 2 weeks later, weve all decided that next time we steal some from school we'll go for the idea of making tattos with it :haha

Me and my friend were mucking around in chem and she got nitric acid all over my face and up my nose.

Burned like a motherfucker.

You'll realize soon that my particular AIDS worries no one. Everyone else has come to the realization that they'll catch it soon.

Thanks for the help, everybody. It's clearing up well.
