wish I knew about this site before I got may 'black' henna arm band..
I got one on the 17 feb here in sydney, oz, at a street side place in
manly. after a day or two, I notice it was slighty red under the
skin.. 1 week later, the whole armband welted,weeped and was swollen..
as the skin worked out the black stuff... weeped for about 2 weeks...
the arm band is just starting to heal now... after 1 month.. now all
scabby and skin still pealing... I was asked where I got my tattoo
burned off! - the person who asked wanted to get one removed as was
asking about scaring... I now have a nice scar forming.. from a
chemical burn. I went back and saw the person who done the armband.. I
was the first that she had seen that had gone like this... guess i was
just lucky! I just put it down to a reaction that I had to the
henna... until I read info on this web site.
been putting v-E on it and taking zinc tablet to help the skin.. after
reading other info about "black" henna on this site, I will go back
and get the details about what was in it and go see a doctor.... all I
need is kidney/liver problems.....(I'm a diabetic)
anyway.... wish I had done some research on henna before I got it
