    Hi Darakhshan.
    This is case of severe contact dermatitis with chemical of bleach.
    Now strict sun protection with sunscreen in morning ,because sun light can increase pigmentation.in noon and at night apply mild steroids on face like topical methylprednisolone. Moisturize skin with good moisturizer.
