Dear customer, it is a pleasure to attend to you today; I want to tell you that you have contact dermatitis; it is a complex situation that must be treated with topical corticosteroids such as clobetasol lotion; you must suspend the use of the beard dye you were using and start with clobetasol lotion, the drawback is that it is a drug that requires a prescription, so you have to go to your doctor to indicate such medication, I would like you to keep me abreast of your health situation, I will be happy to assist you and guide you in everything I can, I will be attentive to any further questions about it through my profile indicated in the following link
