Thursday I had laser to remove some freckles and now I have red like burn marks .I'm using a recovery cream they supplied for me however I was wondering if cortisone cream would be better.

are the freckles on your face, arms or body?
can you tell me what the ingredients are in the recovery cream?

Its on my back and the cream is ultraceuticals face and body recovery cream with soy and DNA complex.

I would continue to use the recovery cream for now. a steroid cream may thin the skin or delay healing.

Typically it takes 2 weeks for the skin to heal from laser treatment.

Does that help answer your question?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
