Wow… you wouldn't think that you could be allergic to a metal, but I guess that would be possible.

Never heard of a nickel allergy before.....below is a list of foods containing nickel.  If, after wheat/grain/sugar (and other bad stuff) reduction, you might explore the possibility of additional sensitivities.

Here in Europe a nickel allergy is very common. That is why a lot of non-precious jewellery sells better and at a higher prices if it is classified as "nickel free". (Or do you say "free from nickel"?)
This has been at topic here for years.

Thanks, deanna. I sometimes wonder about the grammar when I am typing here.

That makes sense redhead.  I hadn't thought about jewelry, and I know that people get reactions to certain types of jewelry.

Here even regarding buttons for example on jeans people want to know whether it is nickel free. At least years ago some people used to get a red spot around their belly button from the button of the jeans trouser.

My 23 year old son still has a reaction to the button on his jeans (unless he covers it with fingernail polish).
Low Carb Since April 2009.

If one has an external allergic reaction, my guess is that one might also have an internal reaction to foods with a high nickel content as well.
