In brief: No

You burned your skin.
Don't add more acid. Toothpaste is designed for use in your mouth, not on your skin. Unless you want to run the risk of permanent scarring stop trying to practice medicine based on a google search. Do what you should have done before you harmed yourself, go see a professional. Call a skin specialist, a Dermatologist, for an appointment.
