hello sir,
Yes,Dettol might be strong solvent over exposed mucosa unless it is adequately diluted.
Savlon on the other hand is supposed to be less irritant.But precautions need to be taken while using both.Its always advisable to use any topically applied substances after applying a test dose over the back of arm or axilla or back or any other hidden areas to check for reactions.
In your case since you thoroughly washed it off,the effects may be minimal/none.However in case u find a problem pls do consult your physician
All the best
