Ouch, poor girl. Can you try to put some simple triple antibiotic on it for now while it's still sort of raw? I don't think that should have much smell to it.
Going forward, she'll need some daily protection from the sun. Waterproof sunscreen is what we use on all our light colored horses at the barn (palominos, greys, paints). There is a smell to it, so that may be disagreeable to her at first, but I think it's something to work on as she's going to continue to burn without it.
I think you said she wasn't halter broke yet, so this suggestion may not be helpful, but it seems like another thing to help her would be a fly mask with a nose to keep the sun off that sensitive skin (here's a basic one
that also seems to have UV protection). As someone who has never halter broken a horse, I can't say how tough it will be to get her to a place where she would accept it, but it does seem like a priority to protect her.
