How to get rid of brown scab on face?

hi I used one of those Nair facial hair removing creams for sensitive skin and after application when I removed the cream this made part of my upper lip bleed and also sting. I applied the Lucas pawpaw ointment to relieve the stinging sensation but overnight it has now seemed to have dried up and has a brown scab on my face. Any suggestions how I can get rid of this unsightly thing? thanks

Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

Seems to have developed irritant dermatitis to the topicals that you have been using.

If I was your treating doctor I would have asked you to apply a moderately potent topical steroid cream e.g fluticasone twice daily for a week. That should make it fine.
