In brief: Allergic reaction

You may be allergic to the metal nickel which is found in varying amounts in bothgold and costume jewelry.
You can be allergy tested to confirm this. Wear sterling silver which does not contain nickel or hypoallergenic nickel free jewelry available fromn the chain claires.

In brief: Nickel Free

To avoid nickel (www.
