In brief: See Specialist!

It could be a general contact dermatitis.
If after 3 days of using an anti-inflammatory cream with no relief, I recommend getting it looked at in person. If you have any symptoms such as increased redness, swelling, fever or nausea, make sure you seek medical treatment immediately! Get better soon!
