STOP USING THE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE!!
That would be the main thing at this point !! Hydrogen peroxide is very reactive and will irritate and over dry the skin!! Yes it kills bacteria BUT if you should have exposed living cells it kills them as well!!
The bactitracin is fine!
Soap and water is fine!
Rest is good and it should improve in a short time span ... a few days....
You could apply some Vaseline to the area as a protectant...
I hope that this is helpful for you! Let me know if you have further questions and i will be happy to get back with you!!
If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback. That would be much appreciated!
Thank You and Best Regards,
Anthony Bray MD
Great, thanks. I'll stop using the peroxide. Thank you for your help. I just wanted to be sure I was covering all the bases.
PS a sunburn product may be helpful such as aloe ... You are very welcome!!
I have some of that I'll give it a try as well.
