that sucks. i take interest with that because i interned with a doctor (changed majors, BA Econ, MBA) so no med for quite a while. but...

if there were to be a metal implant, he would take a piece of that metal (like a coin,but just a piece of than metal) and tape it to the patient. he would check them and make sure nothing reacted preventing any issues.

What are you allergic to? Iron, Nickel?

that is what i am getting to. if he realizes he is allegric to nickel, they use quite a few other metals, i think some might be steel or stainless or probably a few other combinations

I'm guessing its iron that I have a skin allergy to. I remember belts used to be a big problem if the metal came in contact with my lower torso (same type of rash). I don't have a clue what belts are made of but iron seems more likely than nickel. The coating on my strings right now is wearing off near the bridge and I got super itchy yesterday but not today, but it has been a continuous problem.

I'm really weird as far as allergies go, for instance shower water (and lake or sea water) makes me itchy and wherever I scratch gets super red and blotchy... Then there is lactose, dust, acidic fruits, cats and dogs, the list goes on...
