    AHHHHHHHH HOLY CRAP THIS BURNS.

    On Tuesday, I went to my doctor because I had white spots on my neck.

    He told me to put Selsun Blue shampoo on it at night, and to wash it off in the morning.

    Well, it was fine on Tuesday night, and Wednesday night. On Thursday I didn't put it because I was sick. On Friday, yesterday, my mom put it on for me, as the spots weren't going away. It burned a little, but not like this.


    Today, she put it on again. It burns like ANYTHINGGG. Gah. I'm lying down and I have a towel on my pillow. I can't move because the towel sticks to my neck, and the shampoo wears off.

    Just wanted to share.

    Open sore, and the chemical in the wound.

    Should be as painful as getting it in your eyes.

    It's not an open sore.

    The white spots were fungus or some sort of bacteria.

    Doesn't a burning feeling mean its killing stuff/disinfecting, like H2O2 on an open wound. The shampoo was absorbed into the white spot, so its possible.

    No that is completely different, we didn't hear, "It burns when I pee."

    Look at the shampoo warnings -- "An orange-yellow powder that is soluble in carbon disulfide and practically insoluble in both water and organic solvents. Selenium sulfide is used as an ingredient in antidandruff shampoos and as a constituent of fungicides... Contact with selenium sulfide can cause severe redness or irritation of the skin. It is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen."

    Great. I could have cancer on my neck!
    Lol. But seriously, I woke up this morning and still had the burns. After looking in the mirror, it is very red and dry. And the shampoo seems to have burned me! It's burning right now even when it's not on.
    My mom was getting queezy just looking at my neck. She put lotion and that seems to have helped.
    Also my neck is black. I'm brown. I'm definitely going to the doctor tomorrow.

    Hmm.. I would of used salt or some fresh garlic instead of a shampoo, cause both of them are natural and antibacterial. Either way, they would of sting too!

    Update.
    The shampoo actually burned my skin. Apparently I'm allergic to it or something. Well I saw her while outside my house, and showedit to her. She gave me some prescription lotrisone I think it is. Apply it twice a day, and put lotion/ Vaseline in between the lotrisone.


    So yeah.
