Health Tip: Are You Allergic to Jewelry?

By on November 6, 2019

(HealthDay News) — If jewelry causes your skin to itch, you may be allergic to nickel, says Winchester Hospital. Nickel is a silvery-white metal that is used to make a range of products, including zippers, buttons and costume jewelry.

Winchester Hospital recommends these solutions:

  • Stick to sterling silver or 14-karat gold.
  • Wear stainless steel or hypo-allergenic jewelry.
  • Keep the area dry where your skin touches the metal.
  • Wear a layer of protective moisturizing cream.
  • Wear your jewelry less often.
