I don't know if it's the cold weather (I live in ND) or what but I recently took of my rings (on my fingers) because they kept getting in the way at work and now I have some weird cracking and redness where they used to be. I also noticed that the skin around my nipple ring is doing the same thing. I've had this done since June and haven't had any problems with it since then. I'm kind of worried that my skin is having a bad reaction to my jewlery and I don't want to have to take any of my piercings out. It's also painful and I'm getting sick of the irritation. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what could be causing this and if there's anything I can use on the sore spots. Thanks in advance!
