WOMAN TOO SCARED TO LEAVE HOUSE AFTER HORROR HAIR DYE REACTION

A woman who suffered from an allergic reaction to hair dye that made her face swell to twice its size has been left too scared to leave the house. In July 2011, Jo Thomson, 39, from Margate, Kent, dyed her hair using a Schwarzkopf XXL Live home dye kit in shade 'Cosmic Blue'. But despite carrying out the recommended patch test, she suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction that left her covered in boils and fighting for her sight. Now colour blind and allergic to the Sun, the mum-of-three has been diagnosed with agoraphobia, which makes her too anxious to leave the house alone.
