Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX
Dettol diluted or undiluted should never be used on face or as a body wash. The change your skin has undergone should be an irritant reaction to dettol. It will burn facial skin by oxidation reaction.
I advice you to use morning times moisturizing cream like ELOVERA. Night time use, Mommate-G contains Momentasone and Gentamycin.
I advice you to see dermatologist they will prescribe you an antibiotic (doxycycline) and Levocetrizine to decease the itching. From the picture it appears to be just superficial injury and it will heal without scar but still i advice you to see dermatologist.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
