I cannot confirm anything without examination but it sounds like irritant contact dermatitis. Irritant dermatitis, the most common type of contact dermatitis, involves inflammation resulting from contact with acids, alkaline materials such as soaps and detergents, cosmetics, or other chemicals.
Avoid using any lotions and creams over the face for the meantime. Wash your face with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Pat your face dry. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and see if this improves.If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.
If the irritation persists then pls get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities like sweat dermatitis and heat rash have to be probed then.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted if you have any additional queries.
Thank you for your comments kindd that was much appreciated , I shall certainly get what you suggested in and apply it to my face, I've been getting really worried about this but what you have said has really helped. Thank you. :)
Could someone recommend a good hypoallergenic moisturizer as I'm not sure which one to go for?
