I think you will heal fine, rlp. The package may say how often to use it. Maybe you over did it. It seems like a substance that may irritate skin.
Try washing the area with soap and water, and then applying aloe vera. Let it dry, then apply vitamin E oil to soothe and moisturize. Also a Vit. A & D ointment is very healing.
I use something called King's X on my knees. It stops pain instantly. The only drawback is you must clean it off the hands and out from under the fingernails to make sure it does not get in your eyes. But I guess you could apply it with a small cloth and keep it off your hands.
Here's to stopping the pain! Thank goodness there are a lot of things to try!
