Let’s go back to speak of nickel allergy and its causes. Contact with Earrings and other jewelry Economic jewelry (The kind you can buy for a few dollars even in markets and street stalls) is one of the main factors onset of this form of allergic skin, And for this reason, a British study pushes the possible buyers to be very attention. They are mostly very young girls to be risk to develop this annoying allergy, because of the massive use of jewelry that also contains small quantities.
In fact it is the contact Prolonged and frequent materials Nickel base that determines the onset of disease because this metal is released in small amounts in skin, Originating in the long run, the reaction organism.
