Patients with nickel allergies can also use soothing moisturizers and lotions to help manage their symptoms, particularly the rash. Among the best choice of soothing lotions is calamine lotion, which is famous for relieving itching. In the vein of proactive treatments, patients should always moisturize on a regular basis when they suffer from skin conditions. The fact is the skin possesses its own natural barrier, and it gets disrupted as it interacts with allergens such as nickel. 

Patients can get around this by applying emollient lotions and creams like mineral oil or petroleum jelly. This will help decrease the need to apply topical corticosteroids. In any case, if such home-based treatments do not show improvement or especially if the rash worsens, patients need to call a doctor.
