After 1 n a half mnth the red colour has reduced bt not gone completely.. any external medicine which can reduce this hyperpigmentation.. scared to go for another chemical peel

Greetings. Chemical peels can occasionally cause some skin effects like you mentioned and can also cause post inflammatory pigmentation. Ya you could. Avoid further peels in you are apprehensive About it but make sure you discuss this problem in detail with a qualified dermatologist/ your treating dermatologist and seek his advice. Hope this helps.
