Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good morning, I am Dr Elliot. Thank you for your question.
The redness is likely due to the dye being an irritant. An allergy seems unlikely if you haven't reacted to the hair dye
I think it would probably be sensible to have them washed out and checked for any minor damage - this can be done in an urgent treatment centre, and if they are concerned they would probably given you topical Chloramphenicol drops.
The dye is more at risk of causing a small ulcer on the surface of your eye, this will not damage your eye sight as such but would risk infection
I would attend so they can wash them out, then use fluorsceine drops to check for damage, as mentioned, if they are concerned after they will give you chloramphenicol eye drops
Can you attend a local urgent treatment centre? Alternatively I can find one for you
Of course, not a problem.
Please could you kindly rate my response to your question and let me know your nearest town please (or area of city)
