A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

I have seen the attached photograph.
I understand your concern.
In burn cases specifically with chemicals, the foremost important thing is to completely wash off the chemical with soap and water.
I hope you must have already done it.
Next important step is to prevent infection.
For this, topical antibiotic cream like mupirocin 2 percent or silver nitrate is considered as the best treatment option.
Put lots of moisturiser over the affected area.
Keep the wound clean.
It may take 3-4 weeks for complete healing.
You should visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy
