don't know what that is or how

Can you give me a full description of the problem?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
redness and fluid on skin under side burns that I used hair dye on

Have you tried anything yet to treat this?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no

This sounds like an allergic skin reaction to the dye

For now you can try oral benadryl or Claritin and over the counter topical Caladryl lotion

But if it doesn't clear in about three days you'd need a course of oral prednisone from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
