I wanted to get rid of my acne

Patient

Q: I wanted to get rid of my acne so I thought I would try a home remedy. I put lemon juice all over my face then put baking soda on for extra cleanse. I then got some white tooth paste and mixed it in around my whole face even though it burned. Then I went to sleep for 30 minutes. I awoke with my face burning I couldn't stand it any longer. It felt as if my face was being burned by acid. Then my doorbell rang because my parents were home. I let them in then rushed to the restroom and scrubbed it all off of my face. My face was red and a little stolen it had white spots as if it had been bleached a little. I went to bed with my face still slightly burning but somewhat better. As I was sitting in bed I heard my doorbell ring. I went to go see but I realized it was really quiet and was not coming from the doorbell. It took me a second or two to figure out it was in my head. It has been going over and over like a broken record for the past hour and I can't sleep. Please let me know what it is and how I can stop the sound so I can sleep. Thank you
