Chemical burn around nose from acne wash

About eight years ago, I liberally applied some strong salicylic acid based acne wash on some zits around my nose. I now have what I've accepted to be permanent red burns around my nose.

It didn't bother me then, really. But occasionally, years later, I feel a mild pain at the burn areas. Maybe once every couple weeks. I apply moisturizer or Polysporin cream to make it feel better.

Is there still a risk of infection because I never got the burns treated. Also, is there any treatment for it, not just aesthetically but for the mild pain that sometimes flares up?
