What is the best ointment/cream to heal hair dye burns on the face? I have two very small burns because I didn't wipe it off right away and they hurt!

Burn

Pain
The easiest thing you can do is apply Neosporin which will act as barrier to prevent infection and allow healing to occur while help soothing the ache. If you continue with pain definitely consult your primary doctor.

can hair dye cause a yeast infection on the scalp?

Hair Dye

Candida_vulvovaginitis
Hair dye in some patients can cause an allergic reaction which then alters barrier function of the skin. Once the barrier function is altered there can be a secondary infection with yeast or bacteria.

How can I stop scalp weeping from hair dye allergy?

Avoidance

Allergic_reaction
There is no treatment for contact allergy other than avoidance and oral steroids. Because of side effects, long-term or repeated doses of steroids is not a good idea. If you've developed a contact allergy to a hair dye, the only reasonable thing to do is stop using it. Patch testing by an allergist can help you figure out which dyes you should avoid.

How to stop scalp weeping from an allergy to hair dye?

Steroids

Scalp
I think you need immediate attention, this is a serious allergy and can cause loss of hair and patchy hair if you do not treat it properly. Go see a doctor immediately.

I had an allergic reaction to my hair dye and now my scalp if puffing up?

Patch test!

I would recommend seeing your allergist or dermatologist for patch testing. There are specific ingredients in some hair dyes that are notorious for causing such reactions.

Bleached my hair twice & it got on my scalp & my neck & collar bone & now the inside of my body hurts & burns so does the scalp of my head wh. Is that?

Irritation

Body
Bleaching involves some irritation and each person has a different threshold. However if you bleach it more than the frequency recommended by the manufacturer, you may end up irritating the skin and thus the discomfort. Try some topical hydrocortisone cream to calm it down. See a doctor for a more potent cream or even oral cortisone if needed. What part inside of body hurts?

hair dye and breast milk?

Safe

Baby
There is no evidence that getting your hair dyed will harm a breast feeding baby. The chemicals are not significantly absorbed from your skin.
