Question Posted Friday February 18 2005, 11:22 am

OK. I'm allergic to fake earings and it really sucks. I can't get those earings with fake silver that only cost a dollar anymore. Is there any way I can were fake earrings(not clip-ons) with getting a rash on my ear?

i don't think so...i have senstive ears too but sometimes i wear fakes. There's nothing you can do about that so just stick to real ones so you don't get an infection.

Most likely it is the nickel in the earring that you are allergic to. lol, i am too! I find it best to not buy those really really cheap 50 pairs in a box earrings (bad expierience,haha)
I usually buy the nickel-free earrings. Sensitive solutions are also pretty good. They packages the earrings come in usually say nickel free or for sensitive ears. Hope you can find a solution. For cute earrings go to They're awesome!

nope, not really. But claire's & kohl's & some other stores i'm sure sell sterling silver & something else .. i don't know what it is, but anyways, anything that says "sensitive solutions" or "for sensitive ears" should be fine, and a lot of it really isn't that expensive.

I have the same problem. Except I'm allergic to real earrings too.. The only think you can do is probably get real gold earrings, because you're probably allergic to some metals. If you can't get gold earrings, try to get non-allergenic earrings or even plastic ones (if you can find them). Hope I helped!

There are some kinds of earrings that are specially made for that kind of stuff. If you ask the people that work at Claires or something they should be able to help you find some. Hope I helped!

r3miXx327501 answered Friday February 18 2005, 1:30 pm:
You could try gold earings. If you are allergic to neclaces or any of that try putting clear nailpolish on it and let it dry over night.
Hope i helped...

I'm from the UK but I've visited America and I think that you have Claire's accessories there.
Well in there then there's a lotion that protects your ears and cleans them from possible infections and stuff.
Usually it costs around seven dollars I think.
Hope that helped!

MFS answered Friday February 18 2005, 12:54 pm:
Remember, there are many materials used for earring posts. You probably need surgial steel posts. Sterling silver may also work, but will cost more. There's nothing wrong with the surgical steel - in fact, they tend to be the most inert and do not tarnish (as it is high-grade stainless steel). The cheapy-crap usually contians a crapload of lead and other cheap metals (which also makes them softer).

You could try taking them apart and mounting them on new posts. You can get them at Hobby Lobby.

I use to work in the acessories department at a Herberger's, a department store. You can get lots of earrings at a resonable price. What you need in nickle free earings. You can find many for under $10 and even cheaper when on sale. Another choice is sterling silver. Most stores have theirs at 50% off all the time. You can get a pair for under $5.

No probably not. I'm allergic to everything besides silver. Try fake-gold earrings. They might work.
