Sounds like you did a little too strong treatment. Give it time to heal. Mild steroid-- Hydrocortisone ointment 1% can be helpful. Most important is stay away from sunlight and use lots of sun block.

Try using virgin coconut oil as a moisturizer to restore your skin' s luster .It may take 2-4 weeks before you see results.
