Hi,

In chemical, the first few hours may have only burned. After 1 or 2 days, the superficial dead skin will be peel off and leading to infection. My opinion is immediately you must consult your doctor and save your skin.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Puvvula Kishore Kumar, Dermatologist
