METAL ALERGY AND SYMPTOMS
OF METAL ALERGIES
Various kinds of metals have been reported to cause alergic
reactions to many people. Metal alergies are amongst the major
sources of allergic contact dermatitis.
Out of many such metals, nickel, cobalt and chromate are the
metals that are considered the most metals that aggravate the
allergic reactions on the human bodies. The usual symptoms of
the allergic reactions due to these metals may include skin rash
which could end up into blisters and damaged skins.
The most of the costume jewelleries that are available in the
market are made of nickel to which the people are more
sensitized. Due to the body piercing fashions this problem has
further worsened. The metal alergy could easily be diagnosed
through the skin patch test done by the doctors which introduces
different allergens to patient’s skin for checking whether any
reaction is taking place.
