So, what is the worst that can happen? If you are sensitive to PPD you are likely to see a mild reaction where the dye comes in contact with the skin. This could be an itchy dry rash or in more severe cases redding, blistering and swelling of the skin. However, this is not the end of the story, with repeated exposure to PPD your body will react quicker and more severely, in bad cases this can lead to prolonged pain and lifelong scarring, and in very rare cases this could lead to anaphylaxis and even death.
This is why it is so important to patch test. Here at good to glo™ we have created a software solution which makes recording and auditing patch test and strand test information as easy as posting a new profile pic for as little as £3.99 a month.
