I am posting another PSA (like my Wendy's and Restoration Hardware PSAs) for my dear readers. Why? Because I care sisters!
If your wedding ring looks anything like this
You are at risk for developing a rash on your ring finger! I have now come in contact with at least 5 cases of this mysterious "wedding band rash". Most women think it is just a personal reaction to the rings or they may be allergic to the metal. This is what I thought when my rash appeared. Many cases have become so severe that the poor women were forced to remove their rings! I want to take the time to inform you that if you or anyone you know is suffering from the wedding band rash...there is a cure! Unfortunately, the diagnosis is not pretty. The rash is a fungus! Do not deceive yourself and think that taking it off at night or putting moisturizer will help. It will not. The rash will persist. The cause is moisture that gets trapped in the little grooves under your ring due to the pave setting. Normal activities such as washing your hands or washing dishes lets the moisture in.
If you or a loved one has this rash, RUN don't WALK to the nearest dermo and request a prescription for Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide. It will completely clear the irritation in a few days. After the rash is gone, if your hands are going to be submerged in water, take your rings off. Do not shower or wash dishes in your rings and if you wash your hands, make sure to dry them thoroughly (under your ring).
Please spread the word to anyone you know who has this "rash". '
Over and out.
