Is Fake Silver Jewelry Likely To Make Me Itch If Allergic To Nickel
I'm allergic to nickel as found in jewelry. Can I wear chrome plated jewelry without itching or breaking out?
Chrome over nickel: Purely "chromed" jewelry should be fine, but some are actually chromium-plated over nickel(making it more durable), thus once the chromium is worn-off exposing nickel you can still have trouble. Typically the reaction is slow and so if you start to have any trouble with the chromed/nickeled product, stop using asap and you should be fine. Topical steroid helps the rash. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a small dry spot the size of a nickel on my lower right butt cheek. I just noticed it today. There is no itching only if I scratch it. Pls help?

Regardless, using a mild/gentle cleanser with tepid water and a good emoillent lotion should be beneficial. OTC hydrocortisone cream can be used for itch but if the area worsens or spreads, evaluation by a doctor is recommended as you may need a prescription cream (especially if it is ringworm). ...Read more
