For those of us who have to live our day-to-day lives under the threat of allergies, everything can be a burden and a hassle. The only good thing is that we know what we're allergic to and can avoid it. Those who have unknown allergies, however, might one day have the extreme misfortune of learning just what they're allergic to in a painful and embarrassing way.

That's exactly what happened to one Redditor after she got her hair dyed.

It was supposed to be a routine trip to the salon...except she quickly learned that she was extremely allergic to hair dye. This is what she looked like on day one.

The second day was a little better, but if you ask me, that still looks extremely painful.

By the end of day two, as you can see below, the swelling had died down a bit.

This was taken on the third day.

By the time the fifth day rolled around, the swelling had finally gone down completely.

This just proves that people who suffer from allergies don't just have to watch out for pollen. Bad reactions are lurking around every corner.
