To be honest...I see a drastic reduction in pic 3. Just give it a few more days and I'm sure it will be completely gone. In the meantime, you could use Vitamin E oil (they're available in capsules). My mom used them when she had a grease burn on her forehead and there's no scar now.

No, bleach won't work. Maybe pick up some Mederma for scars from the drug store? It might help the healing process.

Yup, split it with scissors and spread the oil on her forehead. I don't know whether it's expensive or not as this was 5 years ago, but if my mom bought it, it must be reasonable. Haha...

There is a product called Dermablend - used to cover up scars. I got some right after I had chicken pox as an adult until all the yucky old spots were gone. Worked pretty well. Better than foundation alone. I got it at macy's so probably would be avaialable at most department stores.

they have a website www.dermablend.com

Leave it alone, it will go away on its own....
Sometimes putting chemicals like bleach on skin that is damaged will result in permanent scarring.
Give it a good 2 weeks, then repost your photos and let us know.
I had a huge burn caused by spilling boiling water on my foot -- it was so bad that the skin was burned right off, leaving a huge (2 inch) open weeping skinless spot. The Dr. gave me some cream to prevent infection (as I had no skin left). After a week, everything healed. No scar, no discoloration, NOTHING. I have a feeling that you will heal without any difficulty. Give it some time!

I used to use vitamin E oil, too, from capsules for dermatitis on my hands during the perm-crazy 80's (I'm a hairdresser). I'd poke one end of the capsule with a pin and squeeze out what I needed...much less messy than cutting it in half.

Good luck!!

Also, stay out of the sun! Irriated skin will tan darker and faster than the skin around it, so to avoid a dark patch, avoid the sun for the next few weeks!
