Hypoallergenic stud earrings have made wearing earrings possible again for people who otherwise may not have been able to wear earrings at all. These types of earrings are used most often immediately following a piercing, though those who simply prefer stud earrings to other types of earrings also wear them. Most importantly, if irritation arises, hypoallergenic stud earrings are a must.
There are several types of basic earring stud styles. The first type people usually think of are the appealing shape or gemstone on a post. Then there are dangling stud earrings. A stud, sometimes called a ball post, holds these earrings in place, but the main body of the style hangs down from that point. They simply have something attached to the stud that dangles off of the ear.
There are also French hook earrings. These earrings, unlike other types of earrings, have no back to put on them most of the time. The portion of the earring that comes out the back of the ear is longer and curved to keep the earring from coming out. These earrings generally have something dangling from them as well and also come in hypoallergenic materials.
Hoop earrings are another popular choice, though they may have a kind of stud on them. The post slips through the hole in the ear and is clasped by the other side of the earring. Usually, the post slides in the top of a slit or a hole in the other side of the earring.
Regardless of what style of earring a person decides to use, those who have freshly pierced ears may want to use the ones that cause the least irritation. This is a good idea if the wearer suspects he or she has an allergy to certain types of metal. A person need not try other types of earrings to see if they are allergic to them. Instead, they can pay attention when they are wearing watches and rings to see what irritates their skin as the metal comes in close contact with the skin.
Those who have allergies to different types of metals will probably do well with hypoallergenic stud earrings based on surgical stainless steel. These earrings are made with a special combination of materials to protect the wearer from having an allergic reaction associated with metal. Allergic reactions can be itchy rashes or swelling that can become very uncomfortable.
