I suffer from chronic eczema and decided to try neem seed oil which has successfully worked for numerous people. However, after applying it on my face and hands at night, the next morning I awoke with a red allergic reaction which was much worse than what I began with and lasted for about 2 weeks. I was wondering if anyone knew why this was and if anyone else had experienced similar symptoms. Is this because I didn't dilute it with another oil? I used a 100% cold pressed oil and have never experienced this with any other oil, hence why I found this instance so odd.
