When I was a little girl, I enjoyed playing a game called Pretty Pretty Princess, a board game where you could instantly become a princess by playing dress-up with jewelry. Of course the pieces were made of plastic, but to a 5-year-old that plastic jewelry seemed luxurious. It was so fun and exciting to feel like a princess just by putting on a piece of jewelry.
As a jewelry lover, I am always on the lookout for the trendiest jewelry for an affordable price. I love all types of jewelry and love mixing and matching different pieces. Something that I have noticed with some of my jewelry though is that certain pieces will tarnish, leaving a weird green mark around my skin. Also, other pieces that I have that are made with nickel tend to make my sensitive skin itchy and red. I often wonder if I’m allergic to this type of jewelry, so I did some research.
Signs You May Have an Allergy to Nickel
Before making the switch to hypoallergenic jewelry, here are some signs that you may a real metal allergy:
- skin discoloration
- rashes or patchy red marks will appear on the skin under the jewelry
- bleeding may occur
- pierced hole in ear or nose swells and yellow colored liquid comes which is pus…ew.
- constant itching and burning sensation around the area where skin comes in direct contact with the piece of jewelry being worn
Nickel intolerance is not something to take lightly because it can result in a more serious skin problem later on. If you think you are allergic to the jewelry made with nickel that you currently wear, it may be time to invest in some nickel-free, hypoallergenic pieces.
