Dermatologist 's  Response

You seem to have developed Irritant reaction to the agent that you used,,,Firstly,be careful not to use the same again over your body again
Apply a mild topical steroid like hydrocortisone cream over the affected area twice a day till the reaction subsides..And use a sunscreen regularly over your face before going out in the sun,as any kind of facial eczema can increase due to prolonged sun exposure..
Do not use any other oils or creams over your face till the reaction subsides..You can continue to wash your face with cold water as it will help to decrease the irritation,,Oral antihistamines like levocetrizine might be helpful if you have excessive irritation

Hope it helps
