Really itchy rash on one side of face that was in the sun. What can I do to even out color and stop itch?

In brief: Depends

You should treat the symptoms with a mild topical steroid and see if that helps.
If this is really one-sided then this may be a sun-sensitivity problem, meaning something other than a sunburn. The change in skin tone may even out with time. You should probably see your doctor.

In brief: Try...

...An over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream.
If that doesn't work, you'll need to see a dermatologist. The color will even out by itself over time. Next time you go out in the sun, apply a good sunscreen lotion.
