Burn on face from putting toothpaste on a spot

Patient

Q: I'm a 21 year old woman with normal-oily skin. I put toothpaste on a spot on my face and left it overnight. This morning I woke up with a red mark where the toothpaste had been and it's just gotten worse throughout the day. I think it's a burn. It doesn't hurt but feels a little uncomfortable if I touch it, and it has been a little itchy. I put some moisturiser on it which made it more red, so I washed that off and put some savlon on it instead and a cold flannel. I have a very important meeting on monday, is there any way I can make this go away before then?

Symptoms:  Red mark on face, burning , itching
