Suddenly allergic?(4 Posts)
Has anyone suddenly developed an allergy to jewellery? My white gold wedding and engagement rings, which I haven't taken off for 8 years have suddenly started irritating my skin. The skin is almost burnt underneath and is so itchy. I had to take them off last night and haven't worn them today. There is a red ring of sore scaly skin where they have been. So odd. I haven't used any new hand cream or soap that I can think of.
I get this occasionally with my wedding ring which interesting also has some white gold. I leave it off until my finger has healed completely and it’s usually ok after that for a while.
Think I just need to get DH to replace it with a Platinum one, have it blessed and a blessing party
Hi i had my copper coil inserted in Nov 2017 and now I have become allergic to my Stirling silver wedding rings and belt buckles. Could this be connected to me having the copper coil as I went to the doctors about a month ago and she said it was down to my hands being in water but my belt buckles around my waist isn't in water and I still get the same reaction. If anyone has any advice i would be truly thankful.
Oh this is actually a thing! It's wedding ring dermatitis or "wedding ring rash" and it's a sudden reaction to the nickel in the metal or a build up of debris. My sister had this and it went away after a good professional clean of the ring and a while of not wearing it, she almost contemplated getting her hubby to buy her a platinum replacement set haha
