Thanks for the query and photograph,
You have developed an allergic reaction, to probably any constituent of the food.
Dont worry its not a serious problem.
Apply a mild steroid cream like hydrocortisone mixed with petroleum jelly.
This will take care of both inflammation as well as dryness.

Let me know, if you have any other doubts.
Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
