    I Became Allergic to White Gold And/or Nickel

    Its pretty bad and only takes 10 minutes for it to start getting red and itchiness to start in. I'm thinking it must be the nickel but I don't know if regular yellow gold bothers me.  It started a while after my daughter was born but I have heard its common and that the...

    Particularly Earrings.

    the earrings i wear need to be made of either silver or gold, otherwise my ear lobes will become angry and swell up. necklaces i can usually get by with, as long as i don't leave them on indefinitely.

    Like Nothing Else

    I can't shop at the cute stores like claire's or the icing because if I wear cheap earrings my ears will react within 30 seconds and I can't wear cheap rings because they turn my finger green. it's the same with cheap necklaces, they turn my neck green.

    Cheap Jewelry

    I cannot wear cheap jewelry on my ears cause I'll get an infection.  On my ears, I wear white gold or gold.

    My Ears

    My ears peel. It's very disgusting. Then they get extremely itchy. Yuck! Not good times. I've never had trouble w/ a necklace. And of course I turn green w/ fake gold. Wait, it is fake gold that makes you green right? I can't remember.

    Silver Or Gold For Me Please

    I too cannot wear earrings that are not sterling silver or gold.  My ears swell and get sore.  A few years ago I had gotten my belly button pierced.  I never even thought about the ring.  It wasn't silver or gold I guess because I couldn't get it to heal well...
