Hi, I picked at a pimple yesterday and scraped off some skin surrounding the pimple. after that i continued with my nightly cleansing routine and i applied my aha cream which has 10% glycolic acid in it. when i got up this morning the skin that i had scraped off around the pimple was not only red and irritated but appeared burned and raised. i m assuming it was because i had put the glycolic acid into the open sore i had made. since then i have been washing the area with a mild cleanser and using polysporin and vaseline a couple times a day. am i doing the right thing or should i go and see my doctor?
