Application of concentrated tea tree oil might have caused an irritant reaction. Basically aromatic oils are mixed in a very small quantity in carrier oils and then used. Use a steroid based cream like mometasone twice in a day wherever you are having redness and burning. It might take a week for redness to go and a little bit of pigmentation might persist over the area of application temporarily. Take care.
