Man Suffers Chemical Burns And Painful Allergic Reaction After Dying Beard

Man Suffers Chemical Burns And Painful Allergic Reaction After Dying Beard

A man was left in agony after he dyed his beard and suffered a massive allergic reaction.

Marno Botha, 21, and his Caitlynn Van Hecke, 21, thought it might be fun if he dyed his usually blond beard a deep black colour.

However, poor Marno ended up with painful chemical burns after leaving the dye on for too long and a bright red face from an allergic reaction to the dye.

If that wasn't bad enough, his chin, cheeks and upper lip became extremely swollen and Marno was left taking antihistamines for a whole month before his face went back to normal.

Marno from Vanderbijlpark, South Africa, said: "We dyed my beard in the afternoon and I woke up at like 3am with this intense itching on my face so I decided to shave my beard.

"I noticed my face had extremely red marks where the hair dye had been applied to my beard and then it started to swell up.

"I could barely move my face and the itching got worse so I went to the doctor who said I'd had an allergic reaction to the hair dye.

"I'd also suffered a chemical burn from leaving the hair dye on my face for too long."

Thankfully, Marno is now back to normal and has even managed to see the funny side of the experience.

"It took almost two months for my face to get back to normal," he said. "Luckily we had to wear masks everywhere so that helped a lot!
