it seems like when i use certain shampoos or different hair gels my face will burn, eyes get red and dry, and i always wake up with red eyes...worse if i take shower before going to bed. COuld this be shampoo? I am beginning to think it is some weird allergy. Can shampoos, etc..casue this ? I get red bumps on my neck and upper chest gets red after shower sometimes? I go to airports and my eyes dry out also and burn? I think something is just drying me out...all over? I drink a few beers and i feel hot as well. Dont have rosacea but some sort of allergy i think? Please let me know what you advise me to do? go to dermatologist and get skin test??

Hi ShaneA,

It could very well be the hair products you are using. Sodium laureth sulfate is an ingredient found in most shampoo's and conditioners and can be quite a common cause of allergies. You need to find hair products that do not contain Sodium laureth sulfate. This can be tricky at your supermarket but I'm sure you'll find a brand at the chemist/pharmacy.

You may want to try the Sodium laureth sulfate free products and stop drinking beer/alcohol for a few weeks to see if it helps.

Definitly try a different shampoo, a good allergy doctor might be able to suggestion something
for you to try, so ask your doctor, I'd say go to an allergy it sounds more like a systemic allergic reaction
keep us posted and well wishes..
