Dettol and salt water will help with a skin infection and also sterilise the skin. This combination will have no beneficial impact on allergies.  Antihistamine tablets help with skin allergies and occasionally a low dose steroid cream (1% Hydrocortisone) may be beneficial. All available over the counter.
