Washed face with a whitening soap. Had small pimple, applied dettol. Produced circular burn. Applied MEBO medication. Will it get healed with no scar?

Hello dear doctors. I washed my face with a whitening doap. i had a small pimple that i irritated, then i applyed Detol liquid on it. it produced a circular black area that i believe is a chemical burn . I applyed MEBO medication for 2 appeared it got better and the outer skin got exfoliated...the inner skin got really good and started to heal form a pinkish color to quite natural skin color i had to got to college, so i put a small bandage on it and went out in the hot weather and burning sun. the burn turned into brown. I went to a dematologist, and she gave me a whitening cream called AVOQUIN 4% the area got very very red, especially that i use at night and go out under the sun in the morning with no suncream(she said that i should put nothing on my face). i only covered my face with a piece of clothing. i went back to her, and she gave me fusibact B and said that my face skin is very sensitive and that i apply this twice daily...and in the afternoon, i put some water and vasline on it. it has been 2 days since i started using it. the redness reduced, and it turned into a freaking white with some exfoliated skin on it. what is my condition, and is it going to get healed with no scar , although it got all these colors in only less than 2 months???? please help. i need to know. thank you

Hi dear,
Detol is a irritant liquid for soft skin. Remember that you can only wash any area with detol for make it bacteria free, nothing else.
It made irritant contact dermatitis near to chemical burn on your face.
You are on the right way of treatment.
But if all these measures failed to remove dispigmentation on your face then
You could try chemical peel or laser from a renown dermatosurgety center.
Hope you will regain a fair face.
