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

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

What is your exposur: This brings up the question of what you may be exposed to now that you are not aware of. The nickel allergy reaction is contact dermatitis and this suggests you may have another sensitizer. You might do an inventory - watch, new detergent, etc. This is not generalized but localized to something near the left wrist. Is the wrist itchy on the top or bottom? Maybe your dog has somet ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Questions that will be important relate to whether the reaction is localized to one arm and possible contacts to that area that are unique to it.
