Brief Answer: use steroid cream and calamine lotion Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to us. When we suggest peels we advise our patients not to undergo any other procedure as peels slightly increase skin sensitivity. Right now to treat your skin rash,use a steroid like mometasone twice in a day and calamine lotion two to three times in a day. Take tablet cetirizine for few days. Continue icing your face. You should see result in four to five days. If not much result is seen consult your doctor. Avoid peel till rash subsides. hope this helped. Take care
