hello – how informative & interesting to learn about your hus and's allergy to titanium. I had brain surgery lastt year – successfully removing a grade 1 benign tunour – but had 2 titanium scews used to reattach the bone flap. The incision has healed well but these past 6 months I have had terrible itchiness around the incision area! Disturbs my sleep & I have to wear gloves to bed at night so I won't scratch my head raw. How did they discover your husban's allergy?

Have you had this test- Five Day Extended Patch Test? These test kits include testing for metals. Only a specially licensed allergist or dermatologist can give this test as the test kit makers seem to limit the number of doctors doing the testing in the area. It also takes a special license I believe. Out of 78 sites I reacted to 5, severely in 3 cases. Because of the information I learned for the results I got my productive and joyful life back. This is an autoimmune disease is chronic, meaning no cure, only contact avoidance. With each repeated contact with your allergy reaction time will shorten and severity symptom with increase.
