Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hair dye is often used as a solution for some people to make hair look more attractive or also to cover gray hair. This is okay to do. However, you also need to be aware of the risks it may pose.
There are a variety of hair dye products on the market, and not all of them are safe for you to use. One of the risks that may arise due to the use of inappropriate hair dye is allergies. This allergy can appear in various forms, ranging from mild to severe, for example skin that feels itchy, redness, swelling, peeling, blisters, and so on. This condition is called allergic contact dermatitis. In more serious cases, systemic complaints may also arise, which need special treatment, for example shortness of breath, vomiting, palpitations, blurred vision, and so on.
Overcoming allergy symptoms cannot be done by consuming certain drugs or ointments. You need to check your complaint with a doctor or a dermatologist first so that you can be sure whether it is true that your complaint arises due to allergies, or if there are other causes. Several other conditions can also cause complaints that resemble allergies, for example skin infections by fungi, erysipelas, seborrheic dermatitis, insect bites, and so on. And, each of these conditions clearly has a different treatment for allergies. So, you should check with your doctor first ..
To deal with the bumps, redness, and itching that you are currently experiencing, here are our suggestions:
Don't scratch the itchy skin excessively
Take a shower regularly, wash your face using a mild cleansing soap according to your skin type, also wash your hair so that no residual hair dye is left behind and settles in the hair
Elevate your head while sleeping
Avoid giving ointments or taking drugs carelessly in the face area
If a similar complaint appears in other parts of the body (apart from the face, genitals and anus), you can apply calamine lotion so that the bumps and itching are reduced.
Drink lots of water
Don't stress or panic
Hope it helps ..
