Suggest remedy for dry face with swelling

I used a cloth facemask last thursday evening, a day later my face felt very dry, 24 hrs later my face looks swollen and burnt, it was hot to touch, it looks as if I had some sort of chemical burn, I applied some e45 lotion every couple of hours and the swelling went down, its now feels very very dry, and still looks like I have had bad sunburn

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, it could be due to some contact dermatitis and it is better to use "Diphenhydramine lotion" if this fails to responds then it is advisable to use the steroid hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
