While applying salicylic acid to a wart, I accidentally got some on healthy skin. It has caused some irritation around the area, including an itchy rash. It feels like the skin has been burned. There is a scab. How long does it take for this to heal? Besides aloe vera, what else can I use to treat it?
Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Wash the area with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.
If the irritation persists then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
