Don't do home peels.:
These are not standardized in strength, and may cause unpredictable results and side effects. See a paramedical aesthetician next time you need a peel.
For now, apply aquaphor ointment, 4 -6 times per day until healed, and go see a doctor to make sure you haven't given yourself a problem. ...Read more

Depends in deprh: Superficial (1st degree) burns with redness require minimal treatment with an ointment & possible nsaids (if not sensitive).

Yes to vaseline: In general, vaseline is a barrier ointment and by being a barrier, helps keep bacterial counts down and decreases chance of infection. It also helps with wound moisture and new skin regrowth. So if your skin still has an abrasion, vaseline two to three times a day is generally good for wound healing. ...Read more

I got a dark scar on my face for using 10% benzoyl peroxide gel and 5% gel. And it does not fade. It looks like a dry burn. How can I treat it?
Hyper pigmentation : It sounds like you have an area of hyper pigmentation after inflammation. Some folks tend to do this more than others but there are options for treatment. Brown pigment can respond to lightening creams, IPL, or ablative laser treatments. Generally with lightening creams the pigment can return upon stopping. I lean more toward IPL or Laser. Sometimes it will improve on its own given time. ...Read more
