Allergy from wearing silver and metalbase earrings

Hi

I have a problem from always, I guess: I can’t stand to wear earrings from silver or metalbase, only from gold. I would like to wear silver and metalbase as I can’t afford gold. I tried to paint them with nailpaint but it doesn’t work very well.

Does anyone know if there is a remedy for allergy to wearing silver and metalbase earrings?

Thank you,
Elena

Hi Belciuge, I also have this problem unless it is the 'sensitive silver" kind of jewlery. I am not a homeopath but I wanted to say I use antibiotic ointment (bacitracin) on my earring backs then put them in my ear. It will last all day and doesnt get infected.

Have you tried stirling silver?

Hi

Thank for your replies.
Yes, I’ve tried sterling silver.

The problem isn't silver jewerly but the nickel added to make it malleable. I also thought that pure silver wouldn't affect me but I was wrong. I was told that painting acrylic nailpolish on the jewerly will help, I'm going to try that next. So remember it's not the silver or in some cases gold, it's ALWAYS the added metal called nickel. Hope this helped.

It's not 'ALWAYS the added metal called nickel,' as I'm allergic to sterling silver, ';hypoallergenic,' and nickel-free jewelry. I can't seem to go under 14k gold, though I believe most white golds and platinums work fine. Also, it seems that I can use sterling silver for most of my piercings, but not my ears, nor can I wear watches, bracelets, rings, or necklaces with sterling. I can, however, wear pendants on a cloth necklace, as long as the pendant stays on top of my clothes for the most part.
