Why do I have skin irritation when wearing my ring?

Some people occasionally experience a burning, itching and/or redness, usually on the skin beneath rings. This condition may be due to the build-up of soaps, detergents, waxes, and/or creams, which also cause a dulling film on your jewelry. To avoid skin irritation and to keep your jewelry bright, do not wear your rings when using cleaning products or lotions, and clean your rings frequently.
