Dermatologist 's  Response

You seem to have developed allergy over face.
Avoid scratching the face.
Do not use any harsh face washes or oils or cream over face.
Do not use dettol over face.

You may need to apply a mild steroid cream over face to treat the allergy.
Take oral antihistamines along.
Use a sunscreen regularly.

Hope it helps
