Nickel Alert Tests for Nickel in Cell Phone
Nickel Alert Tests for Nickel in Cell Phone
PRLog - Nov. 14, 2012 - HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- The recently released study from the American College of Allergy Asthma and Immunology which concluded that some cell phones cause metal allergy reactions was old news to the folks at NoNickel.com.

In February, 2009, Dr. Dennis Gross appeared on nationally televised CBS Healthwatch to spread the word that cell phones were a growing cause of nickel allergic reactions.  During this broadcast, Dr. Gross highlighted Nickel Solution™, a two-part nickel detection and protection kit that includes an easy test for nickel and a lacquer designed to protect skin from nickel contact.

Athena Allergy, Inc., parent company of NoNickel.com, is the maker of Nickel Solution, Nickel Alert™, and Nickel Guard™.  Dr. Gross used Nickel Alert, a dimethylglyoxime nickel test which can be used to safely and easily test cell phones, to demonstrate a positive nickel reaction when testing metal.  This broadcast can be viewed on the NoNickel website, along with the helpful video “How to Test for Nickel In Jewelry and Other Items”. See  http://nonickel.com/pages/nickel_allergy_videos.html for links to both videos.

Around the time of Healthwatch show, many cell phones were tested and found to be high in nickel content.  More recently, tests are showing older-style flip phones and some Blackberry cell phones contain the allergen, nickel.  If there is concern that a cell phone is causing an allergic reaction, NoNickel owners recommend testing that phone with Nickel Alert to conclusively determine if the phone contains nickel. Even though some metal items may have a nickel free coating, this plating can wear with time and expose a nickel-laden base metal.  For older phones, it may be necessary to test in several locations to get a true reading. For more information about Nickel Alert, see http://www.nonickel.com/catalog/Nickel_test-12-1.html

If a cell phone is proven to contain nickel and is causing a rash, there are options.  Although caution must be used when applying Nickel Guard to a cell phone, it can be safely brushed onto immobile parts and will provide excellent protection from the nickel.  Plastic covers and headpieces may also help protect the skin from nickel. A visit to the dermatologist or allergist will provide relief in the form of prescription creams and nickel avoidance education. If all else fails, it may be time to hint for a nickel free cell phone from Santa.  

For those who need nickel free gifts for the holiday season, NoNickel is offering discounted nickel free belt sets (http://www.nonickel.com/catalog/Nickel_Free_Belt_Gift_Set...) along with a huge variety of nickel free earrings, watches, and rings.  Nickel Solution, the detection and protection kit mentioned earlier, is available as a great stocking stuffer!  NoNickel makes gift giving easy with thoughtful presents that will be truly appreciated by those who suffer from nickel allergy.
