My fifteen year old daughter has rash on her neck inside her hairline. What might I put on it to stop the itching & clear it up? She says it started when after she & her girlfriend dyed her hair a month or two ago. She says the dye burned her in a couple

My fifteen year old daughter has rash on her neck inside her hairline. What might I put on it to stop the itching & clear it up? She says it started when after she & her girlfriend dyed her hair a month or two ago. She says the dye burned her in a couple

It: It definitely sounds like an allergic reaction to the dye or possibly even a burn from the chemicals in the dye. Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to the area four times a day for about a week. If there is no improvement she should be seen by her primary care doctor or a dermatologist.
Best of luck. ...Read more

My head is itchy lots! I found 1 dead bug combing through my thick curly long hair. It was long and skinny. I have a rash on the neck. What bug?

Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www. Ridlice. Com/lice-killing-shampoo. Php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more

Severe itching/rash head/neck/chest after handling cat I have had 5 years. Sudden cat allergy? Is it his saliva? He licks my hair too. What to take?

Antihistamine: Rash can be treated with an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical hydrocortisone cream, but may require prednisone RX if needed. If no cat allergy after five years, most likely something the cat picked up causing allergic reaction. Cats don't like to be washed but this one should. ...Read more
