  • Have you tried the brand of earrings called "Whispers" They do not contain nickel, which is one the most known irritants that causes allergic reactions. I'm not sure what stores carry them, and I'm not sure if they are surgical steel, but I do know they are hypo-allergenic. I have the same problem and even 14k gold earrings can bother my ears because of the nickel it contains.

  • I get them from Claire's, Icing, and Hot Topic. I am allergic to gold and I prefer some crazy looking earrings so I opt to go to those three places. Also Wal-Mart sells some hypoallergenic brand that my mom always gets me.

  • I've tried the things mentioned (not the palladium tho) and I'm allergic to all. The only thing I have tried that doesn't make my ears swell, turn red, and pus up is surgical steel.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look at the mall.
