Query on allergic reactions to bleach

Patient

Q: I recently bleached my hair. I was wondering if it was possible to get an allergic reaction from it if I have used bleach on clothes and not had an allergic reaction.

Symptoms:  Tender scalp, tiredness
Doctor

A:   Hello, thanks for your health query on ATD.

The bleach in clothes & over bleaching agents may be different. Also skin products are safer than industrial products. You may get an allergic reaction from any product. If you had not got the reaction from bleach then it is rate to get reaction later.

Hope you got it
