Is there a cream or lotion that will get rid of first degree burn discoloration on skin (back of legs)?

Is there a cream or lotion that will get rid of first degree burn discoloration on skin (back of legs)?

Depends if it's hype: hyperpigmentation (dark color) or depigmented (white) and all the melanin is gone.If post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation PIH, you can use hydroquinone very lightly & only on the discolored part, as it's a strong bleaching agent. Azelaic acid is a milder version. You can't expose it to UV light at all. It's all prescription only from a dr. If depigmented, can't use this. Time can also decrease PIH. ...Read more

1st/2nd degree burn : You describe a first or deep first or superficial second degree burn from using the soap. Just like a sun burn it takes time to heal. Usually 7-10 days if not infected. Keep the area clean, try not to touch it, wash your hands frequently, and let your skin heal. Topical antibiotics like neosporin or bactroban aid in the healing without promoting infection. ...Read more

It is important that you get examined in order to make a final diagnosis. If not able to see a doctor soon you can try clotrimazole or Monistat over the counter but if symptoms persist you definitely need to get checked. ...Read more
