Will the discolorations on my underarm go after being peeled and applied glycolic acid ?

I had my underarms peeled by a dermatologist . She applied glycolic acid on it, i don t know how much concentration. It was my fourth time to have that treatment. On that fourth time my skin reacted differently because it burned my skin and left scabs on some parts of my underarm. after it peeled it left discolorations on my underarm. will it ever go go back to its original color?

Dear user,
You dont worry ,glycolic acid burns will subside in few days.
The discoloration will also go .
Just apply a mild steroid antibiotic cream on it for seven days.
It will be alright.
Take care.
