Hi. Greetings. Don't ever use dettol on your face again in future. Just apply an ice pack or cold pack now. See your dermatologist at the earliest. The burn will slowly resolve. You may need short course of topical steroids under cover of oral antibiotics/ oral retinoids. Hope this helps. Warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal. Bangalore
