Skin Care and Diseases
I have a black mark around my skin where i wear my watch-any idea what this could be-my watch is stainless steel-could i be allergic to it?Thank you
The stain on your skin is not an allergic reaction, rather it is oxides of nickel which are found in stainless steel. By simply coating the back of your watch with clear nail polish you will probably solve most of the problem.
