Hi dear ,

Your description suits that of sunburn .Aloe application may have caused allergic reaction.

Please stop applying aloe.

Just apply calamine lotion twice a day.

Also you can take anti inflammatory over the counter drugs like diclofenac to reduce pain and swelling.

It must subside in day or two.

Also cold compresses would be helpful.
