Contact dermatitis to hair dye Short course of oral steroid along with antihistamine Avoid use of hair dyes in future.

Good answers my dear doctors and good and common question from Dr.Sahil Tandon. Here I focused on the dye reaction. According to patient complaints that is oedema of face and scalp. This implies the duration after dyeing. The first complaint from patient is swelling of eyelids and redness of ears and followed by tight feeling of scalp, Then develop inflammation Vesication and oedema. It depends on quantity and quality of dye Here the reaction is called ALLERGIC CONTACT DERMATITIS. And the agent will cause the problem is PPD..Para Phenylalanine Diamine. Treatment:- 1) Remove the excess of dye or accumulated dye by using soap less shampoo with mild salicylic acid and compresses with very diluted KMNO4 solution. 2) After thorough drying apply watermiscible Steriod cream. 3) mild antibiotics Tab ofloxacin 200 mg for 3 days. 4) Tab levocetrizine for 2 weeks night time. 5) depend on severity oral steroid... methyl prednisone in very mild dose will give good result.

Common ingredients in Dyes available in market are Ammonia Parabens and Resorcinol So these are common allergens apart from PPD..Paraphenylene Diamine ( gives more allergy) So select ammonia, paranormal, resorcinol and PPD free dye
