Wearing earrings is seen as a rite of passage in the lives of many young girls, yet there are concerns every parent needs to address before allowing their daughters to undergo piercings and selecting the earrings of their choice. You should know the hidden dangers before attempting to pierce ears or wear earrings.
For example, did you know that 17% of all women and girls suffer from a nickel allergy? It’s one of the most common problems for girls who wear jewelry. The good news is there are alternatives to traditional jewelry that can help avoid the unpleasant rash and redness of an allergy to jewelry.
Only Buy Earrings That Are Hypoallergenic
Nickel allergies are a form of contact dermatitis, and it can develop at any time, from the first piercing as a baby to an adult woman who has worn jewelry every day of her life. Kids can also develop contact allergies to other common jewelry materials such as silver, gold, and chromium.
Hypoallergenic earrings are the safe alternative to bargain brand jewelry.
The Best Earrings for Kids
Blomdahl USA is a company that understands the need for skin-friendly earrings that do not cause skin reactions. We manufacture hypoallergenic and nickel-free earrings that are healthy, safe and will look beautiful on your young daughter. You can select from two kid safe materials, medical grade titanium or medical grade plastic.
The part of the earrings that touches the skin is made with 100% medical-grade titanium and poses no risk for an allergic nickel reaction in the ears. These titanium earrings studs are also durable and pretty.
Another fantastic earring for kids is medical plastic. Whichever type of earrings you choose, we have a variety of kid-friendly designs adorned with pretty colored Swarovski crystals and Cubic Zirconia.
Evaluating Kids Earrings For Allergies
If you do not know whether your child has a nickel allergy or not, you can consult a healthcare professional. However, the best way is to avoid allergies altogether. Purchase earrings from Blomdahl USA that are hypoallergenic and nickel-free right from the beginning.
Steps to Take Before You Buy Earrings
Parents need to understand that there are health risks involved in wearing earrings or other jewelry. Skin allergies can develop at any age, even adults. Here are some of the steps to take to ensure your child wears safe and comfortable earrings.
Step 1 – Materials – Look for medical grade titanium or medical grade plastic. Both are safe and durable.
Step 2 – Air Flow - Look for earring backs that allow air to circulate to aid in healing the piercing. A pierced ear takes about a year to heal. During that time, your child must wear an earring all the time. Blomdahl USA earrings have longer posts with earring backs that attach to the tip, improving airflow around the hole.
Step 3 – Aesthetics – Your girl doesn’t care about what the earring is made of, she just wants to look pretty and cute. Examine the quality, designs and stones. Are the earrings strong enough to stand up to a child’s activity and hold the stones in place? Most of all, do you both like how they look?
Picking out the right earrings is something that both you and your child will enjoy together. At Blomdahl USA, we have a wide selection of kids earrings and other pretty, skin-friendly jewelry.
If you want your baby or child to wear earrings, you should consult with Blomdahl USA and ask them for the name and location of one of our professionals who perform a sterile Medical Ear Piercing.
