    I think they're totally lieing about the patch test thing though.

    I don't. It's more than possible to do a patch test and be fine, then the next contact you have with PPD it nearly kills you.

    PPD is a nasty allergen and you can use it for years with no problems then WHAMMO, you're in bad shape.

    Oh goodness, how horrible. Okay.. I don't know much about it (and am not blaming the victim), but is it possible that her being so young made her more susceptible to an allergic reaction?

    Yeesh.

    Of course, for many allergies, it's not the first exposure that gets you, but a subsequent one. (Not necessarily what happened here, though.) The first exposure just causes you to create memory B cells for the specific antigen, then a few weeks down the line when you're exposed again, you get a huge IgE reaction.

    PPD builds up in the system, so that people who have dyed for years can suddenly have a reaction:

    Poor girl. I've seen some similar reactions from PPD 'black henna' - this chemical should really never touch skin. And those who dye dark with chemical dyes should be warned...
