I recommend you call your dermatologist immediately and plan to go in for an evaluation as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can try cool compresses, bland moisturizing with something very hydrating like Aquaphor ointment and very gentle cleansing (cetaphil, dove).  Do not pick at any crusting or peeling skin and I would temporarily stop all other skin care products until the skin is healed.  If you are red and itchy, you can try over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream which may help to relieve those symptoms.
