I have used raw savlon on my face and kept it overnight. I n the morning I got burning sensation. I saw red burn patches where I have applied savlon. I have wahsed my face for nearly 20 mins with ice cold water. Now the pain has gone but the area is very red. Will it leave scars? How long will it take to heal? Do I need to take any medical advise?
