The fesh just peeled off by lyres leaving ody fluid oozing from my body and crusting in my hair. Within a wek I had broken out in severe hives tat blistered all over mychest, arms, trunk, legs and chest. Not sure if it was a different cause I googled air dye allergies and was astonished at what I saw and read. Hair dye allergies are very prevelant. Horror stories one after the other. Although my Dermatoligist sas my case is severe and reuse of air dye with PPD could very well end tragically for me I realized from all the stories thy I indeed have an angel onnot shoulder.
