Is Your Armrest Causing Nickel Allergy?
After playing a nickel-plated flute, an American girl recently suffered an extended allergic reaction around her mouth and lips. Could this have been prevented?
Whenever there's direct and prolonged contact of nickel with the skin,
there's also the potential for Nickel Allergic Contact Dermatitis (NACD).
Although not life-threatening, NACD is a lifelong allergy. Estimates suggest
that between 10-15 percent of all American women and 1-2 percent of U.S. men are
sensitized to nickel and thus at risk of suffering from NACD. A disappointing
finding, considering this ailment is avoidable.
