Face allergy irritation from acne product

Patient : I am 12 years old, me and my mom recently bought acne medicine for me, even though I have no acne, we thought maybe that would be a fast relief for my few areas of pimples, I woke up this morning with a VERY itchy face, that is swollen, red, and hive bumps in only some areas of my face. Around my eyes is the worst swelling. Me and my mom are wondering if there is any over the counter medicines the can soothe the irritation, and bring down the swelling. And also some home remedies as well that can relieve it in the next 24 hours.
Symptoms:  Rash, swelling, redness, irritation, itching
