Wedding ring dermatitis or any type of contact dermatitis may cause itchy, swollen rashes at the site of nickel contact. As noted in this publication, gold and platinum wedding bands are not exempt from causing reactions as some manufacturers use nickel as a base before coating the bands with gold or platinum. Once this protective coating wears away, the nickel comes into contact with the skin creating problems for the nickel allergic.
Athena Allergy, owned by professionals with over forty five years of combined contact dermatitis experience, strives to educate consumers on the issues associated with nickel allergy and the ease with which the problems can be alleviated. In addition to nickel test kits and barriers as described above, Athena Allergy offers certified nickel-free belts, buckles, watches, rings, and earrings, all with an unconditional guarantee.
