Brief Answer:
It is due to cauterization from the compound you used.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query and picture. It looks like cauterization caused by the compound you used. It will usually peel off gradually. If it is inflammed then you can use silver sulphadiazine cream for local application. Avoid soaps and irritants to wash the area and instead you can use saline or warm water.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome again.

Thank you for your follow up query.

It can take 4 to 6 weeks for peeling off. You can apply creams containing aloe Vera and vitamin E locally for easing it. Taking vitamin C orally also is good.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
