Dyed hair on monday and it is Wednesday now forehead and sides are swollen, taking benadryl (diphenhydramine) and cold compress, how long until swelling goes down?
Dye sensitivity: Likely allergic to hair dye (usually the phenylenediamine component). This is a ''delayed hypersensitivity" unlikely to respond to benadryl (diphenhydramine) and unlikely to improve if exposure continues (wash out thoroughly). A physician would need to confirm by examination and patch testing to confirm. Treatment depends on severity. High potency topical steroid vs other topical immune suppressant vs other. ...Read more

Inflammatory reactio: The symptoms that you are experiencing can settle down over time, however, you must have rinsed, washed off all the hair bleach products.

Head is scabbing due to chemical burns from hair bleach 2 weeks ago, I'm using antiseptic wash to stop the itch & e45 shampoo -is this ok?
Scabs Beat Scabies: Scabbing is OK as long as there's no infection in there. You'd know that if it is unduly painful or getting more and more painful and there's increasing leakage or discharge. Wash gently and let the scab come of naturally. Don't pick at it (the only thing you should ever pick at is a guitar). If you have to cover it (e.g. you look like a resurrected zombie), do so loosely so the air can get at it. ...Read more

Not unusual: This is due to blood seeping down under the skin of the forehead. It looks bad but it is harmless and should settle down in 7-10 days. I am sure your operating surgeon would be happy to see you again if the swelling of the eyes does not settle down in 2-3 days. ...Read more
