Cure for chemical peel irritation

In 2016 I went to a dermatologist asking to even out my skin because I was getting married, she applied glycolic+salicylic peel. After that my skin was dark n got rough.Attached pictures,around eyebrows above crease n cheeks there r some hives/bumps which are not pimples(they exist for 3 years). They r tingling always,not itchy. All Dermatologist prescribe only steroid which works for time being,hv read their side effects.This worries me a lot.I have oily skin Kindly advise a permanent solution.

Unfortunately most chemical peels contain acids (Glycol and Salicylic acid), these may irritate sensitive skin and lead to pigment changes which may persist. One may even develop a contact allergy to steroid creams. The way forward would be to see a Dermatologist to discuss dermabrasion to remove the pigmented lesions.
