Re: Hydroquinone burned my skin help!
Redness is listed as a side effect of hydroquinone. In some countries, hydroquinone has been banned because it is thought to be a carcinogenic. I think 6% was a high concentration to apply on already altered skin.
The literature on Vanos states it should not be used for more than 2 weeks. You probably should see a dermatolgist and ask if you should be using a skin barrier cream at this point. A good skin barrier cream should allow the skin to heal while keeping it protected from irritation.
