In brief: Get help

Concrete burns are due to the alkaline nature of concrete when wet.
This burn can be severe and quite destructive of tissue. A problem is that alkali dissolves tissue ahead of itself and goes rather deeply. You need to see your physician who might recommend a plastic surgeon for treatment and reconstruction. This is an urgent situation and should not be neglected.
