But, is it possible for someone else to have a reaction from my dye?
For a long time, H was complaining about being itchy. But, he is gone M-F, and he was only itchy at home, not at the hotels he stays at. We blamed the cat for awhile, but, we no longer have the cat. And, shortly after the cat moved to grandma's (about a yr ago) the itchiness stopped.
A month ago I dyed my hair again, and now he's complaining about being itchy. But, mostly only on his one shoulder. The shoulder I use as a pillow all night on the weekends when he's home.
I've never heard of anyone being allergic to someone else's hair dye...is this possible? It really seems my hair could be the problem...which would suck, because it will take awhile for this to grow out and I don't want him uncomfortable the whole time!
It will all be ok in the end. If it's not ok, it's not the end
Happily remarried to a wonderful man (Aussie). I think I found the right guy and the right finger this time.
Could also just be a cold weather/dry skin thing, or maybe even a heat rash from you sleeping there.
If you've ruled out everything else (new detergent, softner, bath products) definitely try a patch test on him. You may need to switch brands.
maybe have him take a Benadryl before coming home, and while he's home
That's a good idea, thanks!
I don't dye my own hair, I always have gotten it done at a salon, while he's away, so, no spot testing.
He's been working in NY for the last 2 years, their weather is a lot like ours. And, I've been sleeping in that spot for 4 yrs now, so, seems odd it happens, then doesn't, then does.
My older brother was very allergic to the detergent that his girlfriend washed her sheets with so maybe that is a possibility as well.
Shampoo, conditioner, gel, hair spray? Lotion that you have on?
I'll keep trying to think of things, but I'm seriously wondering if it is the hair dye. I'd rather give up dying my hair than my spot. My hair is short now...maybe I can keep it all tucked back in a wide headband this weekend and see if it is any better. Otherwise, it appears he is allergic to me, and if that is the case, he better buy stock in Benadryl.
