In brief: Cold pack may help

I would use a bit of soap and cool water to wipe off the oil, then use a cold pack (ice in plastic bag and wrapped in thin towel will do also) will help.
The peppermint will "burn itself out" in about 1-2 hours (must wipe off the oil). Hope this will help. If not better, call doc for eval. Good luck.
