Re: Rash on wedding ring finger

The blisters sound very similar to what i get when i wear metal. I always say mine looks like tapioca! Was very interested in the platinum thing though as so many people have said to me that i will probably be ok with platinum. I haven't tried it because it is a lot of money to buy platinum jewelry ...

Re: Allergic to all metals

Hi Anna,

Thanks for your reply. I have never been offered allergy tests the doctor just accepted my word that all metals that i have tried have reacted with me and told me just to avoid it where i can.

Are allergy tests something i should have done then?
