Hi wincy,
Seems like you have developed an irritant reaction with dettol. Undiluted dettol should not be used over face.
Kindly do not scratch the area as later on you might develop pigmentation in the concerned area.
Apply a mild steroid cream twice in a day and keep the area well moisturised.
Hope that helps. Take care
