7 LITTLE KNOW FACTS ABOUT NICKEL, CHROMIUM AND COBALT ALLERGY

Nickel allergy, Chromium allergy and Cobalt allergies are fairly common throughout the world. They cause or are involved in many eczema, dermatitis and other skin concerns, but they are still relatively unknown to most people.

Below is a list of little known facts about these allergies, which will help you to learn more about it.

  1. Almost 1 in 10 people has a skin allergy to Nickel and other metals such as Chromium and Cobalt! You, or someone you know, is allergic to one or more of these allergens and irritants!
  2. Nickel has been designated as “Allergen of the Year” by the American Contact Dermatitis Association
  3. The New York Times recently wrote an article entitled “Nickel allergies on rise as devices meet skin”, following up on reports that iPads and other popular electronic devices can trigger nickel allergies 4. Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt are present in everyday items that we come into contact with, such as jewellery, leather accessories, cell phones, coins, and even door knobs! In fact, it is frequent exposure to these items (or to metal rich environmental pollutions) that most people become allergic, first, and then develop rashes whence they have become allergic!
  4. When you touch such objects, it is quite likely that some metal irritant or allergen will rub off and penetrate your skin. This can even happen when the item is in your pocket, for instance, as sweat may allow metal ions (tiny metal particles) to cross your clothes and get in contact with your skin.
  5. Allergies to Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt arise from cumulative contact; so the more you protect your skin from contact with these metals, the less likely you are to become allergic
  6. There is no treatment for these allergies. When one becomes allergic, this is for life! Fortunately, most often, one becomes less and less allergic with age...
  7. There are however many things that people allergic to these metals can do. In particular, one can use Skintifique’s Protective Cream HPS and Moisturizing Lotion HP which are based on the very innovative CapturifiqueTM technology, that protects the skin when it is in contact with these metals!
