Caption: Allergic reaction to nickel. A red rash on the abdomen of an 18 year-old woman caused by an allergic reaction to nickel in jewellery. This reaction, called contact dermatitis, occurs when the body's immune system reacts to a foreign substance as though it were a disease-causing organism. The skin becomes painfully inflamed and red. The most effective treatment is to avoid contact with the substance responsible. Severe inflammation can be reduced with corticosteroid drugs.
