What You Wear Matters to Your Skin!

Do you love accessorizing with unique jewelry, but sometimes experience itchiness or rashes where the metal touches your skin? You might have a metal allergy.

Understanding Metal Hypersensitivity

Metal hypersensitivity, a common form of contact dermatitis, occurs when your immune system reacts to tiny metal particles from jewelry. This reaction triggers inflammation, leading to a red, itchy rash.

Metals Most Likely to Cause Allergies

Certain metals are more likely to cause allergic reactions, including nickel, copper, cobalt, and chromium. Nickel allergies are especially common, often appearing on earlobes from earrings or wrists from watch straps.

Avoiding the Triggers

The best way to manage metal allergies is to avoid them altogether. Opt for jewelry made from hypoallergenic materials like stainless steel (surgical grade), 18 or 24 carat gold, sterling silver, or pure platinum. These metals are less likely to trigger an allergic reaction.

Choosing Hypoallergenic Jewelry

Look for jewelry labeled "hypoallergenic." These pieces are specifically designed for sensitive skin, using high-grade, pure materials that minimize the risk of irritation.

Making Informed Decisions

When getting piercings, inquire about the type of metal used. Opt for reputable piercers who prioritize high-quality, hypoallergenic materials.
