Dettol soap on face: Dettol soap is not formulated for use on the face, although like you, a lot of people use it for facial cleansing.

I would stop using the soap and opt for a milder facial cleanser appropriate for your skin type & skin concerns. Also use a moisturizer to help restore hydration to your skin. Add spf in am. ...Read more

While washing my face in the shower, I accidentally inhaled soap that went into my nose. Is this okay?? My nose burns a bit. It was dove bar soap.

Don't worry: The soap might slightly irritate your nose but it will not cause any lasting problems. It should be fine by tomorrow. It would have been good to try to flush out your nose with water.

1st/2nd degree burn: You describe a first or deep first or superficial second degree burn from using the soap. Just like a sun burn it takes time to heal. Usually 7-10 days if not infected. Keep the area clean, try not to touch it, wash your hands frequently, and let your skin heal. Topical antibiotics like neosporin or bactroban (mupirocin) aid in the healing without promoting infection. ...Read more

Even in initial infeciton, the very indirect exposure described here is zero risk. Also, soap instantaneously kills the herpes virus. ...Read more
