Sorry to have burnt your skin with wax.
Please stop using iodine based spray as it may cause discolouration of skin.Instead use a broad spectrum antibiotic cream to prevent superadded infection.You can also use emollient cream to soften the scab. Any burn or injury takes 6-7 days to heal so keep patience.
