Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Dettol is a concentrated solution and should be diluted before applying to sensitive areas and skin. Otherwise this causes chemical burns like condition. You can apply calamine lotion or some anti burn cream and wear loose clothes to avoid friction. This should normally heal. However if symptoms persist do consult a doctor.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

I have the same problem
The pharmacist gave me some benadryl pills ( that make you sleepy)
and some dove soap for sensitive skin. Use that it will help you :D

I used on my anus and it must have caused a terrible reaction. I am still have problems with anus discomfortable 12 days after the foolish application.
