Didn't you have a patch test first?

Any good salon will insist on a patch test for exactly this reason. If it is just swelling (ie you are not going blind) Then bathe with cool water and leave them alone. It should improve within a day or two.

Lesson learned!

nope no patch test
had it done about 5 weeks previously and they were quite itchy afterwards but ok after a day or so
now they are bright red exorcist like and weeping

Quite often its only once you use something for the second time do you actually become allergic - you mentioned they itched last time, did that not give you some idea you might be allergic!!

Did you have a patch test done the first time? confused

That's pretty negligent of the salon!

yes I know didn't mention that in my op
never clicked at the time
but thanks for the telling off anyway
