Can be difficult : Telling the difference between a chemical burn and local allergic reaction can sometimes be tricky, but in general an allergic reaction would rapidly lessen with Benedryl and cool compresses while a burn would be more long lasting and eventually turn into peeling or flaking. Either way, avoiding the wash that caused it would be wise. ...Read more

How do you quickly heal a chemical burn on your face?

Chemical burn: Acutely, you should flush the area with lots of fluid to minize exposure time and resultant damage. Once damage is done, you can use an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection and keep the area moist. If severe scarring occurs, topical and local steroids may be beneficial to modulate wound healing. ...Read more

Burn From Garlic: Do not pull the skin off. Let the skin come off naturally. Manipulating the skin can lead to an infection. Treatment depends on the state of the lesion. If itchy and red with no puss then a topical steroid is helpful. If there is drainage and puss you would need an oral and or topical antibiotic. ...Read more
