Face rash hair dye

Common Questions and Answers about Face rash hair dye


Avatar f tn Hi Dr, 8 weeks ago I had permanent hair dye put on my roots. 2 weeks later I developed a pimple bumpy rash on my face. I thought it was just a breakout of spots so left it (even though I never get spots). 2 weeks after that I had my hair done again, this time just some highlights. The pimple bumpy rash was still there. This was about 3 weeks ago. Now for the last week my face, neck and head have been very itchy and feels as though it is burning.
Avatar f tn My scalp is a little itchy but not abnormally so and it doesn't seem to make sense that the allergy would appear over my face and neck and not mostly on my scalp if this was an allergy to the hair dye. My question is could these small bumps be from the henna dye or an allergy to something else unrelated?
Avatar m tn Hi, I had an allergic reaction to hair dye about a week ago, most of the symptoms have gone, (rash on face and neck, swollen glands behind ears) apart from 2 patches on the side of my head which are weeping so badly that they are dripping, and the top of my head is red raw and covered in little crystaline scabs. I'm taking antihistamines and rinsing my head with bicarbonate of soda dissolved in water and also have diprosalic ointment but I don't want to put that on my weeping wounds.
Avatar n tn I have had a bad rash and hives for 2 months now.. I did not realize it was my hair dye and did it again . I have had to go to the hospital twice my neck swelled up and my air way was closing. I have not used hair dye for about 4 weeks now and the rash and iching and burning of my skin gets better in one spot and then moves to a different spot. Does anyone know how long this can last.. I have had all of the symptoms that I read about including weeping head and ears..
Avatar n tn I dyed my hair 3 weeks ago and have had a string of reactions on my head and neck which have become progressively worse. Firstly i had a small rash around my hair line and on my scalp which was a little itchy but two days after this my whole face had swollen. My doctor prescribed me steroids to ease the swelling and flucloxacillin aswell as antihistamines however the rash has not subsided.It has spread onto my face and neck and a small patch has appeared on my arm.
Avatar n tn HI, If you have history of allergic reaction, this is more likely a reaction toAt the hair dye. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to a topically applied hair product include an itchy, red rash on the eyes, ears and face and, sometimes, facial swelling. The component of the dye that is responsible is the coal tar para-phenylenediamine (PPD). At this point, stop using the dye and see if it resolves.
Avatar m tn Hello, I had an allergic reaction to hair dye about a week ago, I've got most of it under control with antihistamines, corticosteroid creams and bicarbonate of soda. Swollen glands have gone down, the rash on my neck and face have nearly gone, the only thing that won't go away are the three big weeping patches. They itch like hell, but if I scratch, the crusts come off which starts the weeping again. I must scratch in my sleep as I wake up stuck to the pillow.
496771 tn?1209698358 How long does the rash and pain last, I dyed my hair twice after I had a reaction.. did not know it was my dye because I did not have any problems until a few weeks after I did it. 2 er's ear doctor, skin doctor and my primary and nobody knew what it was.

Avatar n tn I used a fabric dye on some of my tshirts , black dye and since I've worn those clothing I have gotten a rash on both my armpits . I'm I allergic to the fabric dye ???? what should i do to relieve the itching and burning ????
Avatar f tn please look up hair dye ingredient PPD. Its in most dyes especially black. Banned in many countries but not USA. Causes skin rashes all the way to cancer and liver disease. the more you dye your hair ovr the years the more chance your body will eventually react to this poison.
Avatar m tn Personally I would suggest that you make an appointment to see your family doctor. The rash may or may not have anything to do with the dye you used to color your hair although this is a possibility. Many years ago I used a shampoo which caused me to have big bumps on my scalp and they itched a lot. In my case, I knew it was the shampoo. I threw the shampoo in the garbage and have never used it again. The bumps eventually went away.
Avatar f tn Hello, About 6 weeks ago I developed dermatitis (or raised small bumps) on the side of my face, neck that were extremely itchy. It happened about 7-10 days after I got my hair dyed, so I though it might be a reaction to the dye. I took benedryl and go a steroid shot. The benedryl took the itching down about 25-40%. I then went to an allergist who put on prednisone, I felt zoned, but this did not help the rash.
354706 tn?1279474395 Okay….back to mum and hair issues. She is really old fashion – she did not want to dye her hair to hide the white hair because she is scared that the ‘chemical’ would be bad for health. With ovarian cancer, the white hair issue disappeared entirely because mommy has no hair!!!!! And throughout the chemotherapy treatment, my mum was really afraid that her hair would not grow back because of her bad habit of plucking her white hair.
Avatar f tn On friday i applied a hair colour. It Saturday evening i noticed little bumps along my hair line. It has been 5 days and my face and neck are completely covered in tiny bumps. They do not itch, nor are they painful. I have no allergies or any medical conditions. Please let me know if this is due to the hair dye and if so what do you recommend.
Avatar f tn then sometimes on face and neck. one doctor told me it was my hair dye. another said my shampoo . i have changed all of this but no help yet. No one seems to know what is causing it. I have used a steroid cream but that just covers up the problem. would hope someone knows how to treat this??
Avatar n tn I would be interested in doing a little survey here, if folks would just let me know: hair loss? no hair loss? (I've done so much writing during Tx, I'm hoping to write a book about "sides.") My TSH is normal. I started losing hair around wk. 12. If it were liquid, I would say it's dribbling out. Faster and faster in the last 3 weeks. (I'm now at wk. 20/24.) My very experienced & excellent hairdresser gently warned me, hairloss AFTER chemo. is not uncommon.
Avatar m tn Blistering contact dermatitis from a hair dye or cosmetics is another possibility. But these causes are to be ruled out only if the culture report comes negative. Hope that this information helps and hope that your daughter will get better soon. Wishing her good health.
Avatar n tn I’m fearful to use the cream he prescribed if it is not scabies. Any one ever have scabies or a reaction to hair dye like this?
Avatar f tn Hi, I am on week 4 and havd noticed that I seem to be "shedding" a little more than normal. I have long hair, don't dye it, gets lots of complements on it. When I asked my doctor about hair loss he said' "it isn't that noticeable". Obviously that isn't the case for some (and maybe alot) of people. I noticed more hair loss than normal the last time I washed it. I have been careful to wash it only when necessary (2 x per week). It is scary and I don't mean to be vain.
Avatar f tn A week or so ago, I developed a non-itchy rash on my face, and shortly thereafter something similar appeared on the back and sides of my neck. There are a few bumps on my shoulders and back, but that's about it. The bumps are small and light red and they don't itch or itch very very little, like mildly dry skin would.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to be allergic to your own hair? My hair brings out a rash on my face and neck where it touches. This does not happen all of the time but when it does it is extemely itchy and brings out small red spots. This then spreads out to other areas of my body. The problem seems to be worse when I am on my period. I have tried switching shampoos several times but nothing seems to work. I don't know if there is anything I can do apart from have my hair cut extremely short. Any advice?
Avatar f tn A friend of mine used to insist on 'plucking' out a grey hair if she saw one on me!!!! She didn't like me allowing myself to look 'old' (I was about 30 then!!). It IS all perceptions, but I once heard that we all "put on a face" every day to face the world - our hair, make-up, clothes, smile, jewellery is all part of that face BUT it is nice to chill occasionally and just BE.
Avatar n tn Google Morgellons Shield 1 on Internet. Do sauna or steam face, and u will see lint coming out of hair and falling into basin. Wash hair (after steaming)in basin of water and u might get to see what this stuff is. Include a spoonful of food grade Diamataceous Earth (fr internet) and a spoonfull of psyllium husk, from health food store, into your daily morning cereal to get this stuff out of your body. It is a parasite.

Avatar n tn Is it possible to be diagnosed with shingles without having an external rash? The pain is on my left side only in a band near my waist line. The pain is horrific - even to the touch. All symptoms seem to be consistent with shingles but after 2 weeks of this, there is no rash. Narcotics, vicodin and darvocet have helped some but not completely.
Avatar f tn it can be due to contact dermatitis,phototoxic drug reactions,herpes zoster and porphyria cutanea tarda and bullous staph infections.Blistering contact dermatitis from a hair dye is also a possibility. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl and apply some calamine lotion. If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done by a dermatologist. You may need topical and oral steroids.
Avatar n tn My face feels like little bugs or a hair on it. Has been doing this for around 5 years. When it first started, it only happened on occasions, but over the years and the stresses I've been through it is there almost all the time. When it's really bad, I take a half of a xanax and go about my business, it's funny how when your busy you don't even think about it or feel it. Anxiety is a terrible thing.
176741 tn?1295237589 I am 20 years old and over the past few years I've had many medical problems that lead me to believe it is caused by hypopituitarism. My symptoms include: 1. When I was 17 years old I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. I was missing patches of hair for about a year and a half & then my hair began to grow back again. (Currently, I am not missing any hair.) 2. Again, since I was about 17 I have had extreme pain in my knees.
