651B Niobium Spiral Wave Bracelet-999

Nothing I have told you here is a secret. The information here is available to everyone and should be widely known. These are just a few of the resources I have used in learning about allergies, metals, and skin care. Some of the information is scholarly, some is medical, some are personal stories, and a few are sort of New-Agey, but all offer a perspective on this shared experience of living with a nickel allergy. I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information on any individual site.

I have included this resource page for two really good reasons: (1) I don’t know everything, and (2) Many of these websites have useful photos of the allergy that I cannot legally display since I do not own the rights to them. I also want you to get the idea that there is really is a whole world of information out there, and that you are not alone.

In the course of your own studies, if you find new information or links that would be a good addition to this site, I would really appreciate it if you would let me know, too. Please be kind, and reference and link this site if you share out any of the information you learned here. Don’t forget to bookmark for future reference. I hope you find this to be a helpful resource guide. Have a wonderful day!
