chemical burn my face

I burned my face with a toothpast at first and then I used a bleach lotion just just to get rid of the dark skin I've goten from the toothpast ...so my question is ..how to can I treat a skin that was burn by toothpast and bleach lotion?

Hi there,
The immediate treatment of burns from bleach is flushing with lots of water. Apply a cold, wet compress to the burn area. An over the counter pain killer like ibuprofen may be taken. Avoid putting any ointments onto your burn, and do not remove dead skin or blisters from the burn area. Get the burn rash examined. Your doctor may prescribe topical creams and antibiotics if an infection is suspected. Schedule an appointment with a dermatologist soon. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
