Completed a Brazilian Keratin treatment on hair. Why are there rashes on scalp?

My wife just completed a Brazilian Keratin treatment on her hair 2 days ago. As of yesterday (next day) she has rashes all around her scalp and forehead and even has some swelling on her forehead. She immediately washed her scalp and applied some cortizone cream, but the rashes and swelling still exist. She is planning on taking Benadryl to see if it helps. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the query,

She might have developed an allergic reaction to the products used in therapy.

She can apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also an antihistamine tablet would be of great help.

Benadryl is an anti histamine,

She can take it safely.

This will give her some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
