I have had several eegs done but a couple of years ago while at the hospital a woman came to remove my electrodes and remove some of the glue like they usually do. This time was different because she had me to hold a towel tightly fixed on my forehead and told me that she was going to rinse my hair. As soon as she soaked my hair I couldn't breathe! My husband asked what see was using? I immediately knew it was acetone and I freaked as well as my husband did. No couple years later my scalp looks as if I have psoriasis entirely covered my scalp. It has made me extremely self-conscious anxious and depressed. Sadly I Came Upon This forum while looking up if acetone can cause this as a reaction? I am going to say that dowsing a scalp in acetone is a bad idea no matter what the scenario or situation. I'm sure that as said in previous stories it does get used but I'm sure that didn't walk in with a jug crack it open and literally drench your scalp. Lord how I wish I could go back in time and asked what was in The Jug instead of assuming it was some type of distilled water!!!!
