HELP! Problem with wedding band!!

Recommended Posts

my e-ring does this sometimes (platinum) and it is because it is so thick - that, when you wash your hands your hands aren't dry underneath your ring.

 

Best advice - for a while, take it off so the bumps go away - hydrocortizone cream can solve this overnight.

 

then, be really careful about drying your finger off under your ring...

I'm allergic to nickel as well - and the same thing happened with my white gold ring...which is why i had to get a yellow gold e-ring and wedding band!

 

As the other girls have mentioned, see if your jeweler can plate it for you!

The girls who I know that had the problem had yellow gold rings. I'm not sure why it grows there, but if the ring is wet under that would make sense that a fungus would start to grow there. From what I've heard it's common.

I take my ring off & dry it on my tshirt everytime I wash my hands. I don't like the way it feels with water under. thats why I never wore a ring until my ering. I've gotten used to it.

It could be an allergy, but it may not be... I have platinum and I had this problem when I started wearing my e-ring, and again with my wedding band. I'm just really sensitive. I wear both now without a problem though. I think making sure your finger is dry after washing your hands is a great start after giving your finger a few days off. If you still get it, the rhodium idea may be the trick!
