Myskate on the "Help Getting Rings Off" thread gave me the idea for this thread. My younger DD became allergic to metals, even stainless steel. The only metals she could wear were titanium and niobium. For you who are allergic, keep in mind that these allergies can come and go. Here are some of the things we did to cope: Paint earrings with clear nail polish Only buy watches with plastic backs Bought a huge lot of titanium and niobium ear wires What other things have you found that have helped?
