Thanks for the query. It appears from your description that you have developed an irritant contact dermatitis. You should apply a soothing cream plus a low potency steroid preparation for 3-4 days only. Consider taking OTC antihistamines for decreasing the redness and associated pain. If it doesn't improve in next 48hrs, meet a Dermatologist. It could in rare instances be like herpetic infection which needs specific treatment. Hope it helps you Dr MK Agarwala
