Woman Suffers Worst Hair Dye Burns from Boots Hair Dye That Doctors Have Ever Seen

22 year old Zoe Vernon had to be admitted to hospital after she suffered a severe allergic reaction to hair dye.
Zoefrom Didsbury in Manchester who works in a call centre suffered an allergic reaction and hair dye burns from a £3.29 Boots home hair dye kit.
The doctors said that her burns were the worst hair dye burns that they had ever seen on someone and through concern about her condition they placed her on an intravenous drip and admitted her to a burns unit.
She spent three days in hospital and is still suffering with blurred vision in one of her eyes.
Miss Vernon often used different brands of hair dye and claimed that she hadn’t had any allergic reactions when using hair dye previously.
Before using the dye Zoe did a patch test on her skin to test before putting it on her scalp and said that she noticed no change from the test.
The morning after she applied the hair dye her face and eyes were extremely swollen and red and over the next few days her condition began to worsen. After two days her boyfriend Oliver Beddard 27 told her to go to hospital.
They went to a walk-in centre where nurses expressed concern for Zoe’s breathing because her neck looked so swollen that they called her an ambulance.
Since leaving hospital and beginning the recovery process Miss Vernon has notified Boots of the incident.
Boots have now begun conducting an investigation into what happened with the product and have said that they are taking the incident very seriously.
Since her allergic reaction and the hair dye burns that she sustained she is still suffering from the affects. Zoe has to take medication daily and will be having further skin tests to determine what caused the severe allergic reaction.
It didn’t just affect her physically but also emotionally. She told the Daily Mail how terrified she was of the severe allergic reaction and the pain that she was suffering from. She spent a lot of time inside hoping for the reaction to recover on its own but it just got progressively worse until she was hospitalised.
She said that she is now too scared to use another at home dye kit and wants people to be made more aware of how strong the chemicals in these products are.
Dr Chris Flower of the Cosmetic Toiletry and Perfumery Association told the Dailey Mail.
“European figures show there are only around three allergic reactions for every million hair colourants used.”
He explained that the compound Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) most often caused these allergic reactions and that people shouldn’t use it if they are affected by it.
