Your Secret Allergy Triggers Revealed
Blue jeans buttons
The buttons on your jeans are probably made with the metal nickela rash trigger for up to 20% of women. A nickel rash near your waistline is usually itchy, red, and sometimes blistery.
What to do: Take your pants to a tailor and have her replace the nickel buttons with plastic ones (another metal might also cause irritation). A second option: Coat the button with clear nail polish, a remedy found to be effective in a recent St. Louis University study. Just be aware that nail polish itself may lead to a rash if you’re sensitive to it.
