A GUIDE TO JEWELLERY ALLERGIES [INFOGRAPHIC]
Red, itchy earlobes after wearing your favourite studs? Swollen wrist after flashing your new bracelet for the first time? Weeping skin after a day dazzling your loved ones with your beloved ring? There’s nothing worse than discovering that your gorgeous new earrings, bracelet, or chain is causing your skin to flare up.
But you’re not alone. According to the Nickel Institute, 12-15% of women and 1-2% of men are allergic to nickel – the main cause of a jewellery allergy.
The key to irritation-free accessorising is learning how to spot a metal allergy and knowing how to treat it. (That, and tips on how to find jewellery that is both gentle on the skin and adds a touch of sparkle to any outfit.)
So, we’ve put together a handy infographic that will help you determine if you have a jewellery rash, what metals may be causing it, and how to treat it quickly.
