  • Chemical burns
  • Cellulitis (bacterial skin infection)
  • Itching
  • Redness

  • Swelling
  • Weeping blisters and skin lesions

The level severity of these reactions varies from individual to individual, however, some people have needed to be hospitalized due to the serious nature of the side effects.

Skin Reactions and Chemicals

On the market since 1987, one of the main ingredients used in Just For Men is p-Phenylenediamine (PPD). PPD was named by the American Contact Dermatitis Society as the Allergen of the Year in 2006 in order to bring the risks of serious skin reactions after using chemical hair dyes to the attention of consumers. Furthermore, the Just For Men label boasts a warning that users experiencing ‘rapidly spreading skin rash, dizziness, faintness, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, tightness of chest, hives or swelling to eyes/face, blistering of skin or scalp weeping’ should seek medical attention. This shows that the company is aware of the adverse side effects of the product, yet still continues to manufacture it.

If you have used Just For Men and have experienced any of the above listed symptoms, please contact an attorney from Atkins & Markoff today. We will go over your case in detail and determine whether or not you are able to file a lawsuit to receive compensation for your injuries.
