We, at Medic Assist, pride ourself with the fact that ALL our jewelry is NICKEL-FREE! Why? Because, “Nickel allergy is one of the most common causes of allergic contact dermatitis – an itchy rash that appears when your skin touches a usually harmless substance.”
Nickel allergy can affect people of all ages. It usually develops after repeated or prolonged exposure to items containing nickel. Treatments can reduce the symptoms. However, once you develop a nickel allergy, you will always be sensitive.
The symptoms of nickel allergy usually begin within 12 to 48 hours after exposure, and may last two to four weeks. Symptoms usually only appear on the part of the body that was exposed to the nickel, but may appear elsewhere on your body. Nickel allergy symptoms include:
Rash or bumps on the skin
Itching, which may be severe
Redness or changes in skin color
Dry patches of skin that may resemble a burn
Blisters and draining fluid in severe cases
