Hi I'm new to this group. I am twenty years old and female. I have had blonde highlights before done three times but this past Wednesday I got my hair dyed dark brown. It looks almost black. That night my head started to burn and the smell made me very sick to my stomach. The next day my face got all blotchy and red and itchy and my throat swelled up and burned making it hard to breathe. I took liquid Benadryl, since I can't swallow pills do to a narrow throat, and then my mom took me to immediate care. My tongue was burning and felt it was swelling up. My whole mouth was tingling. I got examined by the nurse and then the doctor. My head burnt but didn't have any redness or burn marks. The doctor said I could get an Epi Pen but it could increase heart problems and more health issues. She said my tongue didn't look swollen but I told her it still felt like it was burning. She let my mom and I decide if I wanted to get the Epi Pen and we decided against it. I can swallow fine and much better than Thursday. I have taken Benadryl for the past two days and my throat still burns and feels swollen. But again I can swallow fine. My throat is red and my head still burns along with my neck. I haven't taken any Benadryl yet today but I'm breathing better. I also deal with bad anxiety and depression.So I don't know if my breathing was worse because I was having a panic attack or multiple of them? I have applied coconut oil to my face and scalp. The blotches are basically all gone it's just the burning in my throat, my scalp, and my throat just feels swollen still. Is this common? Should it not get any worse? I'm just very concerned I'm going to die but the doctor didn't seem like I needed the Epi Pen. Any help or advice would be greatly appreicated. Thank you
