Posted by Craig on Monday, August 06, 2007
body piercing jewelryI've blogged about temporary tattoos that could bring on allergies, and now, according to the CourierPost Online, the popularity of body piercing has led to a rise in nickel allergies.

Nickel is often one of the metals present in piercing jewelry, and it can cause severe allergic contact dermatitis, or eczema.

If you have nickel allergy, use the Nickel Solution kit to test for nickel content; the kit also allows you to wear jewelry that would otherwise cause a reaction.

As an extra precaution, when purchasing your body jewelry, make sure it is made from 100% surgical steel. This material is preferred by the industry; any other materials, including gold is not advisable to use as body jewelry. Using surgical steel jewelry will prevent the problem before it starts.
