Allergy to titanium

Just curious, has anyone experienced any issues with the titanium hardware? I'm reading on other sites that some people can be allergic or sensitive to the titanium especially since it's not 100%? I already have multiple sensitivities so I don't want to add. As it is I haven't worn my wedding ring, other than on the most special occasions, for 24 years.
Thanks all.


  • I'm no expert in this area, but I also have multiple metal sensitivities. I do have multiple piercings and stainless steel is fine, but anything else gives me a rash (zippers, buttons, belts, Eric). For some reason, despite doing a significant amount of research before my cervical disc replacement, I never considered this. I assumed the metal in the implants were stainless steel, and the doctor didn't ask about sensitivities. After my ADR, I started to get worried that I might be allergic to the metal due to some complications I had (which turned out to be medication-related). 6+ months later, I am absolutely fine, and somehow not allergic to my Mobi-Cs despite having reactions to every other metal out there. So if I were you, I wouldn't automatically rule anything out before researching, asking doctors, possibly getting tested, etc.
