I have sensitive red-head skin & this autumn I have been vexed by an ugly, painful & persistent rash at my waist. It would almost go away & then return nastier than ever. I went to a specialist last week & was diagnosed as being allergic to nickel. The dermatologist explained that the metal in belt buckles & on the buttons on my jeans was the cause. I have yet to find a suitable stainless steel buckled belt or an alternative. The Husband suggested a piece of rope, but I have never been big on the Jethro Bodine look. I have taken notice that no one in my life seems to bat an eye when I announce- “I can’t seem to keep my pants on”. Why would that be? The rash is gone now.
