Is hair dye causing dermatitis?


Q: I'm using hair dye for 4 years and never had problems but now my hair started falling a lot.I've always had problems with acne on my back,chest and forehead.Did my skin condition spread on my scalp because skin is very sensitive and hair dye helped getting worse?I cant use cosmetics with parabens because of contact dermatitis so I avoid them but still can't get rid of the problem on my back.It's itching when skin is stretching.I tried a lot of acne treatments that had just temporary effect.Is it in my blood?or Is there any way to get rid of all of this problems without having to stop using hair dye?
