Not anaphylaxis but: If you are allergic to the dye (especially black dye), you may end up with an even more intense reaction from reexposure. I would not recommend using the same dye. ...Read more

If I have a shampoo allegy then If I put shampoo on my arm then also it will cause an allergic reactn right? Coz my blood will react to it?

If I have a shampoo allegy then If I put shampoo on my arm then also it will cause an allergic reactn right? Coz my blood will react to it?

Probaby: but since you don't leave the shampoo on the hair for more than minutes, placing it on the skin undiluted may cause an irritant and not an allergic reaction. Even if you are truly allergic to one of the ingredients, it may take from 24 to 72 hrs to show a reaction. This is not a task for amateur. ...Read more

I've had a reaction to my mascara. I stopped using it. The area round my eyes is red dry burning and itchy. Can I put anything on them or around them ?

I've had a reaction to my mascara. I stopped using it. The area round my eyes is red dry burning and itchy. Can I put anything on them or around them ?

Good start: Stopping the cosmetic is a good start. Washing the skin with soap to get rid of any of the mascara left on the face. Use bland emollients and wait 12-24 hours. If the skin is still bothering you by then, you could try a very light application of 1% cortisone cream available over the counter in any drugstore. If that fails, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I've always had sensitive skin rash around my neckline . My hair and my clothes agitate it. It reappears regularly. Possibly an allergy?  What to do?

Eczema vs. Contact: You may have just an irritant reaction to sweat and friction at the neck line, but you also may have a perfume/cologne allergy or a nickel allergy (found in jewelry of many types). Otc Hydrocortisone 1% may help if used 3 times a week or so. If the reaction is not controlled easily there would be a benefit from seeing a doctor to discover the true cause or use stronger prescriptions. ...Read more

Vaseline : You made the correct decision to discontinue the mascara product. You're obviously sensitive to some ingredient in it. Nonprescription products are usually contraindicationed around the eyes and eyelashes. As an option to soothe the flaking skin, try using some Vaseline by carefully smoothing a small Amount into the skin and eyelash area. Note that if this doesn't help resolve your symptoms, C MD. ...Read more

I think i had an allergic reaction to my mascara. Skin around eye is red and swollen. Can't see a doc until 2 weeks. Is there anything i can do?

Yes: Firstly do not use the mascara until you know if that caused your problem. Secondly, with sterile cotton balls and warm water wipe down over your eye--never up or sideways and remove any residual make-up from your eye. If your eye or lid area remain red and swollen, you should see an urgent care facility because of the risk of infection and not wait for your two week appointment. Feel better! ...Read more
