Over the past several weeks, I’ve developed this curious problem. I’m not sure what it is – so I thought I’d share. In September of 2005 I got engaged to the man I love.. the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. I have been wearing his ring since September 10, 2005. I love the ring – – it’s gorgeous and beautiful and I love wearing it!
Several weeks ago – I developed this itchy rash under the ring. I thought maybe something got underneath it.. like hand lotion or something that irritated my skin. So, I took the ring off and wore it on my right hand until the rash went away.
Since then, I’ve put it back on and taken it off a dozen times, cleaning the ring over and over each time – – and each time I put it back on, I develop this blister-like thing that itches like CRAZY! See the picture to the right – – that’s what it looks like today after wearing it all day yesterday.
Note: Wearing it on my right hand isn’t a problem. The skin on the ring finger of my right hand doesn’t do this.. just my left, wedding ring finger.
The band is platinum. It didn’t bug me at all up until a few weeks ago. What the hell?
The wedding is a little over 2 months away – – could this be psychosomatic? Could it be nerves? It’s gotta be a reaction to the metal in the ring? But why would it not bug me the first 7 months I wore it? And why wouldn’t it affect my right hand like that?
Does commitment make me blister??
