Wound healing - pls help !Could anyone recommend a remedy to assist with wound healing and skin re-habilitation/renewall? My sister did a glycolic acid home facial peel and left it on too long. Ouch! She says it looks worse than it feels but I'd like to give her something to aid the healing.

I have some aloe vera and it makes her skin feel really taut actually. Any ideas homeopathically? i'm thinking calendula , but there may be a better remedy ..
thanks for your suggestion !

jentoun last decadeArnica not indicated if skin is broken - no probelm using it internally, tho'. For application, use calendula mixed into petroleum jelly. If you'd describe how the skin looks and how your sister feels, a more specific remedy might apply. (And the aloe is a real good idea - why not apply it for say half an hout and wash it off?)
Minsa last decadeI've had good results with Calendula cream and Urtica Urens cream. The Urtica is more of a burn remedy. Also, isn't belladonna indicated for sunburns? Maybe that would help. I'm not a professional, so I hesitate to give a definitive answer.
I'm surprised a home peel could do so much harm. I thought they were self-timing. What was the product?
