Your symptoms suggest a moderate kind of allergic reaction.I guess more aggressive treatment with oral antihistaminics, steroids and local steroid creams need to be considered.
Swollen glands are likely to be due to inflammation.

If there is pus formation or increased tenderness then possibility secondary infection which will need course of antibiotics needs to be considered.

Dermatologist Dr. Amit Kumar Agarwal's  Response
hi annie

negative test report as observed by you is no guarentee that you will not get allergic reactions from the dye you are using.

what you have now got is allergic contact dermatitis to dye
treatment is- avoid hair dyes with composition similar to one you are using
use topical steroid &/or oral steriod, the dose and duration depending on the severity of your condition
oral antihistamines are needed to provide relief and speed the healing process
please visit a dermat to determine the dose and duration of treatment
