Burn scar: You are still early in the overall healing process, but it certainly sounds like you'll scar. One thing commonly used that helps with wound healing is vitamin e oil. This can help the scar heal and fade. There are a variety if other scar minimizing ointments or preparations. Sometimes, if the scar is quite large, you could have the scar revised, but usually we let the wound heal for a year. ...Read more

Razor Bumps: Apply corticosteroid cream to your razor bumps to reduce the redness and swelling fast. Corticosteroid cream is mild and can help you quickly. Also try using benzoyl peroxide on your razor bumps. Using a benzoyl peroxide ointment with at least 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide can reduce the bumps and prevent any kind of rash from forming. ...Read more

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

Yes: If not done properly by a properly trained board certified plastic surgeon, then can cause burn injury. Other specialty trained physicians unfortunately claim to have proper experience or training but they do not. ...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
