Rash after wearing any kind of necklace

Since Spring started I have the problem where if I wear a necklace for even just one hour in a temperature controlled restaurant, I come home and I have a rash on my neck. It's a light red with little darker red bumps. Heat rash I think. Doesn't matter what types of necklaces I wear, I always get it. I'm going on day 3 now with this rash after only having worn a necklace for all of one hour. Anyone know how to prevent this? Is the only solution really just to not wear necklaces?

Metals? on May 05, 2015 @ 07:08 pm

Maybe you have developed an allergy to the metal or alloy? I can't wear certain metals as well because they give me rashes.

People can suddenly become allergic to sterling silver and 24k gold? I wonder if I took an allergy pill before hand if that would stop the rash? I have a stainless steel necklace that I'll have to try out. That kind of metal is supposed to by hypoallergenic, right?

Clear nailpolish on May 05, 2015 @ 08:58 pm

i have a metal allergy and I avoid rashes from them by painting metal clasps, belts, earrings, etc, with clear nail polish. The barrier breaks down eventually and you may have to repaint it.

allergies or irritated skin on May 05, 2015 @ 09:14 pm

My best guess it you are either allergic to the type of material (metal,gold,silver, and ect) I know I had a problem for a bit with fake jewellery. My ears would get red and ight and start to hurt because I was wearing fake material. The other thing could just be maybe the way your necklace sits around your neck or what you wear with it like does it constantly rub against your skin when you move ect.... That all I can suggest best bet it stop wearing it for a while and then try again. Before my skin was sensitive to certain jewelry and now I can ware what I want no problem. Just give your skin a break for a bit.

The necklaces I wear are never tight and they're real gold or silver. When I wore the one necklace out to dinner I was sitting all night and I didn't feel it move a lot. But after an hour or so when I got home I noticed the rash. And this was on Saturday, I still have the rash today. Thankfully it's not itchy in the slightest, and I know from the last time that this happened it goes away eventually on its own. So I didn't bother applying any creams. I did notice that I started having this problem when I was wearing my gold necklace while pregnant and then all of a sudden it started giving me a rash that would last several days after taking the necklace off. And this was just last Fall so it wasn't from heat. Since then I've still had that problem. I wonder if it's still postpartum hormones acting up? I know I've started loosing big chunks of hair and that's apparently not supposed to level out until a year has passed.

I had the same problem every time I wore a Necklace,no matter how expensive,I would always break out in a rash.It got to the point that I went ans saw a Dermatologist.He told me I was allergic to Gold around my neck,yet I could wear Rings and Bracelets with no problems.He said I would have to stop wearing them.I started to wear them outside my Blouse or Sweater after that.If it didn't touch my skin ,I was o.k.Hope this works for you.

Stainless steel jewelry is always hypoallergenic. I have so much of this type of jewelry and not 1 breakout. Sometimes, after pregnancy, our hormones are still out of whack and take time to get back to normal. Considering you had such a difficult time and all you went through, it may take longer. That's only my opinion. I've also seen some gals that have never been able to wear anything but stainless steel. It's probably just hormones and your body reacting to the metals after all these months. Ginger.
