So, I have really sensitive skin and have had eczema my entire life. My FH bought me a gorgeous 14k white gold ring when he proposed. It is the only jewelry I have woren for longer than 24 hours.
We got engaged in April and I have been fine. But lately, I’d say within the past few weeks, I just can’t wear my ring because I itch. I have a dry red ring around my ring finger where my ring sits. I wear my ring to work and then have to take it off immediately when I get home because my finger is so inflamed.
Now I don’t know if it’s stress related, cause I have been extremely stressed the last few weeks trying to close on our future home. Also work has not exactly been fun. Or if it could be eczema related (which I notice is brought on more when I am stressed). Or if I am having an allergic reaction to my ring.
Anyone experience anything similar? What did you do? I want to wear my ring, I love it. I know my FH went to the extremes to get it. I put Aveeno lotion on it as much as I can and try and stay away from anything I know causes me issues when it comes to my skin. I just want to wear my ring 🙂
