What Are the Treatment Options for Metal Allergy?

Treatment for metal allergy may involve:

  • Avoidance of exposure to allergenic metals by avoiding or minimizing contact with metal-containing objects or materials.
  • Topical corticosteroids or antihistamine creams to alleviate symptoms of skin irritation or rash.
  • Oral antihistamines or corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and relieve itching or other allergic symptoms.
  • Desensitization therapy (immunotherapy) for severe or persistent metal allergies, although this is less common for metal allergies compared to other types of allergies.
