i had my first facial done almost 2 weeks ago, and every since then I have been dealing with white painful patches all over my face! I thought it was dry skin, but i put lotion on and with in min of putting it on i have to take it off....it burns so so bad, it brings tears to my eyes. I have tried different lotions, even oatmeal lotion unscented, and just plain ole' a and d ointment...and it still was the same way. Even water hurts. What can I do to get this to stop hurting? I will not be getting a facial again!

Don't put anything else on your face and take a benadryl pill. It is an allergic reaction. Yes I agree the burning is awful!!! I do this quite often with some soaps.

I was thinking allergic reaction as well. Poor thing. Hope it feels better.

That is bizarre, I have had so many facials and that has never happened to me.

It does not sound like a regular infection, white painful patches sounds like a yeast infection. I think you should go to the doctor.

Yikes, what kind of facial did you get? a Peel? This has never happened to me and i get facials at least 4 times a year. I would call the salon and let them know whats going on see what they suggest or go see a dermatologist. you could also try plain organic yogurt as a treatment...but I would leave it up to the professionals. I'm so sorry!

I would call the place you got it at and ask them what type you had and what is in it. Write it down.

Then make an appointment with a dermatologist and have them look at it.

 ok now I am nervous! My sister got me a facial and body massage for x-mas and I'm set to go in on Feb. 11. I have never had a facial before. I hope this don't happen to me. Oh and I hope you get yours resolved.

ohh don't worry girl! If you have super sensitive skin just let them know and stay away from enzyme facials until you know how you skin will react to a "regular" facial..have fun!
