As someone who’s allergic to everything, one of the stranger allergies I suffer from is a nickel allergy. What’s so bad about that you might ask? Nickel can be anywhere, and from zippers, to jean buttons, to jewelry (affordable and sometimes not), and I’m sick of the itchy blotchy rashes that come with donning some of my favorite duds.
If you’ve ever taken off your jewelry at the end of the night and had itchy red bumps on your neck, arm, or ears, you too could very possibly have a nickel allergy.
