Aftermath of laser treatment: day 5, burned skin is starting to peel, should I peel it or not? Because it irritates me

In brief: Topical antibiotic

Do not peel the skin off since it acts as a barrier to prevent infection.
Use a topical antibiotic 2-3 times per day. If worsening, then see your physician to evaluate for infection or other complication.
