I had this and swapped it to the other hand.. but I'm now wearing it on a chain because the rash/irritation came up on the other side too. When you're pregnant, any allergies/intolerances can become more obvious. It should go back to normal once you've had baby though
Could just be a reaction. I have my ears stretched [I know slightly different but still!] and when I got preg my ears which were always fine before started getting really irritated and itchy. Ask the pharmacist for something that might help?
iv stopped wearing mine aswell, only because for some reason when im at work and using my hands alot they tend to swell, i think my bodies got confused and is swelling my fingers instead of my ankles!
i know what you mean though about feeling naked, iv put them on a chain so iv still got them on me at all times though
Hi I have not worn mine for a couple of years, since i was a couple of weeks pregnant with first. I have had sausage fingers ever since. you get used to it ;-) although its annoying when people look at your hands to see if you are married/engaged or a single mum lol.
It could very well be that your rings are just dirty. I get this every so often and it requires me cleaning them. I boil them in a pot on the stove that is a mix of vinegar and peroxide... boil for half an hour or so.
If you have a ring with diamonds (a lot of wedding bands have them inset now) with the holes underneath especially, this is very important as you get so much gunk and bacteria growing under it, which causes the rash. I actually had to use an anti-fungal cream (like canesten) to get rid of the rash permanently, because once you put the rings back on, it festers again.
Trust me... the boiling works amazingly. It helps restore the colour, cleans the diamonds thoroughly, and makes it all shiny and new.
