Yikes, no it hasn’t, but maybe you should see your doctor.  Who knows, maybe they can help you?

I would schedule an appointment with a dermatologist.  She/he will probably be able to give you better advice and might be able to give you something for the burning.  Have you tried taking anything for it?  If it’s an allergic reaction, benedryl or another anti-inflammatory might be helpful.

You have until Friday so that is good news. My guess is that it will clear up and if it doesn’t you will probably be wearing foundation so it should cover the redness up.

This happened to me also about two weeks ago… mine calmed down enough after two days, along with coverup makeup, to look presentable, and even photogenic. If you are still having problems after a day, I would say go see a doc.

If you don’t go see a dermatologist, I’d drape a washcloth soaked in whole milk over your face. It will soothe the burn and help with the inflammation. The fat is good for your skin and will help replenish it.

Keep a hydrating cream on it. Clinique makes one for redness that is good for soothing. I use it when i get an exzema breakout.

Are you allergic to salycic acid? Or was your skin being irritable to begin with and this compounded it? I find that Neutrogena is really irritating to my skin, and salycic acids in general are not as friendly to me now that i’m in my 20’s versus when i was a teenager. Maybe you just need a milder product for your adult skin?

The same thing happened to me, with AcneFree kit. My Dr. said it’s because those "kits" are for people who have chronic acne, not occasional bad breakouts…they’re too strong. Try the benadryl, and if you can see the Dr., they can give you prescription strength lotions with lidocaine or other pain relieving ingredients. For future reference…try the Aveeno face wash. It’s much milder, keeps you moisturized, and it kept my breakouts in check.

Just remember that you have time for it to clear up like the other ladies said.  Try and not use makeup on it unless you HAVE to so you dont irritate it further.  Also, remember that you can talk to the photog and if they are even a decent photog then they can use some easy editing techniques to fix the burn and make you look like your beautiful self. 

If I can take motercycle wreck road rash off a chicks butt and thighs(swimsuit shoot) then they can fix the chemical burns if need be.
