I have used a 50% glycolic acid peel on my dry skin on my face & it's turned cracked & sore. What could I use to heal & get rid of it?

Glycolic peel: In the future, it would be better for you to have a professional do your peel application. At this point, an ointment may help. Otherwise have your skin evaluated by your doctor.
