Symptoms of titanium allergies?

Symptoms of titanium allergies?

Nothing special: Allergic reactions are pretty common and for the most part not specific to the specific antigen (cause). If the exposure to titanium is direct skin contact, would expect redness and possible swelling there. See:http://j.Mp/vgz70k.

What are symptoms of titanium allergy or toxicity from implant?

Titanium allergy: Not to downplay your concerns, titanium allergy is very rare and most always associated with jewelry. It is found in most all paints, rings, body piercings, replacement knees, hips, laptop covers and even toothpaste! Any symptoms arising after an implant can raise suspicions, but 'documented' allergy to titanium is more a by product of a cottage industry (allergy testing) than a clinical finding.

Can an allergy to titanium cause problems if one has filshie clips?

Can an allergy to titanium cause problems if one has filshie clips?

Titanium allergy: I suppose it is possible, there have been reports of people having problems with them, part of the problem is that allergy to titanium is not as prevalent as other allergies and people coming into contact with titanium is not as prevalent as well. Many dental implant materials, as well as prosthetic implant materials are made of titanium because of the low incidence of allergic reaction.

I am allergic to all metals but titanium. It causes a skin reaction of redness and swelling. I was debating getting a tattoo. Can I with this allergy?

I am allergic to all metals but titanium. It causes a skin reaction of redness and swelling. I was debating getting a tattoo. Can I with this allergy?

Would not advise it: It may be wise you're not to do the tattoo. If you wish to pursue your choice you need to see a dermatologist who can skin test you to see exactly what metals you may be allergic to. A lot of people are allergic to nickel, but a dermatologist can clarify this.

I was recently told that my surgeon put in a stainless steel plate in my arm & not titanium. I have an allergy to Nickel. Will this cause me problems?

I was recently told that my surgeon put in a stainless steel plate in my arm & not titanium. I have an allergy to Nickel. Will this cause me problems?

Ni Allergy: Unless the allergy is severe, the Ni leaching out of a plate should be insignificant. Since there is rarely enough friction to aggravate any elution when placed on a long bone or a flat one your are probably safe. Swelling and redness around the area would prove me wrong.

I had elbow surgery and had a plate put in a titanium plate put in my elbow to secure my radial head and since then I have been very sick I've haven't felt good I been sick too is this what kind of allergy reactions to titanium allergy

I had elbow surgery and had a plate put in a titanium plate put in my elbow to secure my radial head and since then I have been very sick I've haven't felt good I been sick too is this what kind of allergy reactions to titanium allergy

Probably unrelated: In marked contrast to nickel. There are no clear reports on allergic reactions to titanium. The few reports that claim to describe allergy to the metal raise serious questions. In short, your symptoms are unlikely to be due to titanium.

Metal knee allergies: I have had pain & some swelling in my knee & lower leg since my replace. W/ titanium knee 3 yrs ago. R there other metals in it that causes allergy? ANS: I would look up the replacement you had and see what they report. Discuss with your Dr. Who did implant to see what others have experienced.
