Hi... I just bleached my hair, and i've used the same hair bleach before and nothing happened, but this time I think i'm either having an allergic reaction or i've gotten chemical burns from the bleach ... I'm not sure which it is and I kinda don't want to go to the dermatologist to check it out ... But the irritated area is on the back of my head on my scalp right above my neck, it's not all over my head ... It burns and I can feel bumps and I think that there's pus ... It feels like a burning rash. My brother suggested using aloe vera gel to calm it down but i'm not sure what else I should or what it really is, if it's burns or allergies... Can someone help me?

hey so does that mean I can use it on my scab things too cause I think they are chemical burns from dying my hair too much........Will it restore my hair as well?
