The Abby Sciuto depicter on 'NCIS', who is naturally blond, shares a picture of her wearing a hospital outfit with swollen face and warns her fans about the danger of the allergic reaction.
Actress Pauley Perrette, who plays forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service", recently received treatment in a hospital due to a severe allergic reaction to hair dye. The actress, who is naturally blond, shared a photo of her wearing a hospital gown on Friday, July 18. In the photo, Perrette appears to be having swollen face.
In her next tweet, Perrette explained that she had been suffering from an allergic reaction to hair dye for a year and the symptoms got worse every time. "[I] was in ER. Just got home from hospital. My head swelled like a melon," she said of the health scare. Perrette additionally warned her fans to recognize the symptoms, especially if they dyed their hair black. "It can be fatal. People have died. For real," she continued.
Speaking to CBS Los Angeles, the actress who has been dying her hair for 20 years said that she had rash all over her neck six months ago, but she ignored them and it got worse. She only went to hospital following some rash and swelling. "The other half of my face had become twice the size of my head," she shared. Now she considers wearing wig or using natural hair dye.
Perrette was most recently seen at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Los Angeles. She walked on the red carpet alongside other stars such as Michael Weatherly, Brian Dietzen and Emily Wickersham.
