Burnt face due to hair remover cream. How long will it take to heal?

I burned my face with nair facial hair remover. I put it all over my face for ten minutes and realized after that I should have only put it on my upper lip and chin. I have burns around my face and am using vitamin E , neosporin and aquaphor. Is there anything else I should do? How long will it take to heal? Should I go to urgent care or?

welcome to healthcare magic forum
you have irritant contact dermatitis over face
what you applying is not enough ,add hydrocortisone cream over it twice a day
take antibiotic and anti histaminic medicine
in severe case steroid can be given for short time
avoid sun exposure and wind .
do not wash your face too frequently
it will take 5-7 days to heal depend upon severity of the burn
i hope i answered your question
