Hi Verrell,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The use of hair dye can indeed trigger an allergic reaction. This allergic reaction can cause the scalp to feel itchy, red, sore, swollen, peeling, or even scaly and blistered. The emergence of this allergic reaction is strongly influenced by genetic factors (congenital) which causes a person to experience excessive sensitivity when in contact with certain substances that are considered dangerous by the body, when in fact they are not. In medical science, this condition is called allergic contact dermatitis.

These allergic manifestations do not always appear since childhood, but can also only appear as adults. Even if you use the same hair dye, allergic reactions can still occur, for example, due to different concentrations of hair dye, adding or subtracting the composition, and it could also be because your skin type is becoming more sensitive as you age.

However, it seems you also need to know that the symptoms of hair dye allergy can also be similar to irritant contact dermatitis, scalp infections, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and so on. Therefore, it is necessary to do a direct evaluation by a doctor to distinguish each of these conditions, because each can have a different treatment.

If you currently experience allergy symptoms after using hair dye, you should stop using the hair dye immediately and wash your hair using shampoo and rinse thoroughly. Avoid any application to the scalp unless advised by a doctor. Avoid scratching or pressing too much on the scalp. Then, immediately consult a doctor to get the right treatment.

To prevent repeated complaints, you should limit excessive hair modification, including using hair dye.
