I'm a hairdresser. Can the odor from hair dye cause an allergic reaction or the throat to swell/close?

I'm a hairdresser. Can the odor from hair dye cause an allergic reaction or the throat to swell/close?

Yes, tho...: ..it techically isn't an allergy. Could be hypersensitivity to the odor of the aerosol which can actually trigger tightness in upper airways such as laryngospasm or paradoxical vocal cord movement. Sensation usually triggers coughs but highly distressing airway spasm may develop. Sipping water and exiting area help. Can't rule out asthma so I'd see an airway specialist: allergist/ent/or pulmonary. ...Read more

Hi I got treated at my ER last night for allergic reaction to hair dye and it's comes back today what should I do?

Allergic Reaction: I'm not sure what your treatment entailed last night. Hopefully, they gave you instructions for continued treatment. If they did not, then you need to return for care either to your regular physician, an urgent care or to the ER if you are having difficulty breathing, swallowing or closing up of your throat. If you just have a rash then I would take antihistamines until you can be seen. ...Read more

Had allergic reaction to hair dye, it's 3weeks later and I'm done with my meds,but it's still draining .Wat do u recommend? Please contact me asap.

Contact dermatitis: You must be very frustrated and I'll bet the itching is unbearable! I think you need to continue treatment to manage symptoms until this reaction works it's way out of your system. Are/were you using oral glucocorticosteroids (Prednisone, Medrol) as well as massaging a topical steroid lotion in the scalp? There may also be a superimposed infection that needs to be treated. You'll get better. ...Read more

Am having an allergic reaction to laser.I have a very sensitive skin, almost any way to remove hair is hard.Now my skin is full of rash bumps what i do?

Am having an allergic reaction to laser.I have a very sensitive skin, almost any way to remove hair is hard.Now my skin is full of rash bumps what i do?

Not allergic: Unless you are allergic to the gel or topical anesthetic used , the bumps are more likely inflammatory response to the laser injury. In hair removal, the intent is to destroy the hair follicles without harming the skin but this is difficult in dark skin people. Try some topical cortisone cream. Sometimes using a bleaching cream on the target prior to treatment may reduce the skin injury. ...Read more

Large painful bite looking bump on side of neck, allergic reaction to bandaid covering it, now rash around neck, chest, legs, and arms. Very itchy!

Mgt suggestions: From your description, the area on the side of the neck may be an insect bite, and the total body rash part of an allergic reaction.Exam the neck area for any bite marks, stingers. I would suggest not attempting to remove the stinger. Applying Hydrocortisone and Calamine in combination with an antihistamine may provide relief. I agree that if you have any breathing problems, proceed to the ED. ...Read more
