In brief: Need more

You need a topical antihistamine to act locally at the sit of the allergic reaction.
Apply topical benadryl, (diphenhydramine) and consider taking a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or zyrtec oral antihistamine. It is best to be seen by a physician if these basic measures do not help within 24 hours.

In brief: Benzoyl peroxide

That is a side effect of benzoyl peroxide.
If you cannot tolerate this stop using it.
