In brief: 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.

Yes, Ti skin allergies do exist, but allergic manifestations (to hips, knees,dental, etc) are rare. It is in toothpaste! There is almost no pure Ti body jewelry (where most "allergies" are suspected, rarely proved). because Ti used to make jewelry is always alloyed with vanadium, aluminum, chrome, tin, zinc, molybdenum--all which may induce "allergy".
