I started applying bleach and calamine lotion every six hours, starting 2 days ago. My question is, since bleach makes the oil come out, should I dab it up with a paper towel, or let the oil harden?

I usally put the clorox bleach on first, (the kind in the spray bottle). Then after 5 or 10 mins, I douse the affect areas with calamine lotion and let it hardin. Also is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process, that won't damage my skin to much more than the bleach already does. The bleach actually disolves a layer of skin, each time you apply it. Laquer thinner is far worse, that actually takes oall the fat out of your skin, makes it fall off and it kills your liver.
