Many individuals experience symptoms of Atopic dermatitis while coming in contact with gold and silver ornaments. Still, the important thing to remember is that the allergy to gold ornaments can be due to other trace elements present in the jewelry, such as Nickel. Sometimes ornaments are made with nickel and then are coated with gold or silver metals, so the individual thinks that they are allergic to gold or silver but in reality it’s the alloy metal that needs to be blamed. Read till the end to know more about Gold allergy treatment.

The common sites of the allergic reaction are the ones where people normally wear jewelry items such as earlobes due to earrings, fingers due to rings, and the neck due to necklaces. The infected site can develop intense itching, become red and develop blisters due to acute dermatitis and can also become dry, thick, and pigmented in case of chronic dermatitis. The symptoms of allergy can also be present at other sites such as hands which do not come directly in contact with gold or silver metals. 

Ayurveda emphasizes on the ideology of asatmya or the things that do not provide nourishment or pleasure to the body. It includes both aahar, which means diet and vihaar, which is a lifestyle factor. In this case asatmya is observed due to vihaar or wearing of gold or silver ornaments which causes allergic reaction. Furthermore, gold and silver allergy can also be understood as seasonal or acquired skin sensitivities. The increased sensitivity of the skin can occur as a result of a reactive toxin known as Amavisha and it is even more harmful than the toxin product called Ama. This manifests the symptoms of allergic reaction such as pruritus, redness, and swelling. 

If an allergen or any other thing that triggers the process of asatmaya in the body comes in contact with Amavisha then it exerts a negative influence on cellular functions and produces symptoms such as rashes, pigmentation, roughness, and irritation.

Causes of Gold and Silver Allergy

The specific cause of gold and silver allergy cannot be identified, but an individual develops symptoms when the immune system becomes sensitive to the metal. If you are allergic to other metals and also have a positive family history of metal allergy, then it increases the probability of you having gold or silver allergy.

Moreover, it is also important to understand that your immune system is fighting against the small traces of other metals like nickel which are added to gold to make it more durable.  

Furthermore, it is also crucial to understand whether the allergic reaction is culminated due to body contact with the metal or is it due to piercing or insertion of metal. If the reaction is due to piercing then it may produce symptoms like oozing or bleeding, ulceration, decaying, pus discharge, and necrosis. 

Symptoms of Gold and Silver Allergy

The symptoms of gold and silver allergies overlap with other allergies and diseases such as eczema. But the distinguishing factor is that the individual develops symptoms of itchiness, redness, discoloration, or pigmentation every time when the skin is exposed to gold or silver ornaments which make it clear that the allergic reaction is due to gold or silver. The common symptoms of gold and silver allergy are:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Rashes
  • Itchiness
  • Peeling of skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Blisters that oozes out
