Hi there,

I gott a "henna" tat. on my back on the 17th. 2 days later came the
itching and after 3 to 4 days my wife finally saw it for first time
and told me it also blistering and cracking. Read several websites
and see that this stuff can be bad news. Reported to health dept. and
they have had several previous complaints...pretty sure it illegal to
but they don't have any local laws that can be used to enforce. Say
FDA is supposed to but won't due to lack of resources. Went to
emergency room and my doctor, neither of which familiar with
henna/ppd, and showed them stuff off internet. I have steroid cream
and benadryl now, plus getting kidney and liver tests. Skin is now
reallyyyyyyyy itching and raised/expanded at all ink points. So what
to do??? Am I killing myself? You know of good lawyer? Procedure for
determining what in the ink? Any ideas?

Thanks for your help and web site.
