I have been bleaching my hair with the same bleach for three years. I just did it today after four months and I have chemical burns. Help?

In brief: Don't use again

You have probably developed contact dermatitis.
You must avoid the same product or another product with the same ingredients. Discontinuing the product generally would resolve the problem. If not, you may have to use a prescription corticosteroid scalp lotion. In that case see your pcp.
