Allergies/sensitivities to metals?

Gone (LD29) Gone (LD29)
I've been thinking about trying out some stainless steel toys, but I've been hesitant to invest the money because I'm not sure how they'll work for me. At times, I have allergic reactions to metals with prolonged contact with my body.

For instance, I typically wear a watch with a leather band that runs behind the face because I'll get a rash if I don't. I get a similar rash on my neck if I wear either sterling silver or gold necklaces (forget costume jewelry). I seem to be able to wear rings (any metal) on my fingers with no issues, but I can't wear any kind of earrings without the piercings getting infected. If I wear jeans too many days in a row, the inside metal piece of the button even messes with me.

I don't seem to have any reactions with handling metals for short periods of time. No issues using utensils like forks or spoons either, but again there is not prolonged contact.

The question is, does anyone else here have similar issues? If so, how has your experience been with the stainless steel dildos & plugs available here on EF? I'm curious to try some of the metal shapes available, but afraid I might have to stick with glass when I want something rigid.

I also have really bad allergic reactions when wearing metal jewelry (unless it's 24ct gold); but I do not have any problem/reaction using my Njoy Pure Wand and Pure Plug.

I think your safest bet would be to try some toys from the Njoy line. They are pricey but they are also made from medical grade stainless steel. I don't think other metal toys sold here are near the same quality (material or design wise).
I have the Pure Wand and Pure Plug large and they are just the best. Sometimes my ear piercings get slightly inflamed but I'm not otherwise sensitive for metals.

Thanks for the advice. I feel a little better about trying some out now.
