a serious allergic reaction to PPD in Hair dye

I think I know what makes it react so bad. It is the natural covering of the hair on my head as it was growing. I also wear glasses and as I have just got a new pair that are thick plastic and they stay on my nose and rest on the side of my head, the friction and lack of breathing creates severe problems for me. I feel like my skin is on fire and just underneath the skin it feels sort of pussy and I have head aches in the last week on and off, and they are paralyzing. My eyes are hot and have been taking ibuprofen. I am trying to let my skin breath as much as possible, but it has been oozing and scaling quit a bit and it is embarrassing to go out.

Thought I could grow my hair out.....what now?

A few weeks ago.... tired and wanting my hair long again, I started to grow it out. When it covered my head as you can see in the picture, the symptoms began to return. Puss is coming from my ears again, my head is oozing and I get boils on my hands and they hurt. My neck is starting to itch and underneath the skin on my neck and forehead it feels bruised. When I had my head shaved from the summer on, I could put cream on it and it seemed to breath better. Now that I am growing my hair out it all comes back. I feel very ashamed that my hair can't be long and in a braid.
