What Is The Difference Between Eczema and Contact Dermatitis

Dye Dermatitis:

Dye dermatitis is a specific type of contact dermatitis which is an allergic reaction to permanent hair dye. It can occur in people who have used a product repeatedly as well as people who are using a product for the first time. The severity of the allergic reaction can vary from mild irritation and itching to intense symptoms such as burning, blistering, and swelling. In one extreme and very rare case, a 38-year-old woman suffered an anaphylactic shock shortly after changing her hair dye. At first, she developed a non-specific allergy-causing scalp itching after using her old hair dye for a while. She changed the dye, but anaphylactic shock developed and she died within an hour after applying it.

Since the risk of sensitization rises with the frequency of contact, it is essential that a patch test is performed every time the dye is used. If you are using a product for the first time a minimum of 10 days is required before you develop a specific sensitivity. For second and subsequent exposures 6-72 hours is enough.

If you developed an allergic reaction and a patch test was not performed prior to the coloring process you may be entitled to compensation for any extra medical or hair treatments that you required to remedy the problem.
