A tried and true method for addressing rashes and skin allergies of various types, including a nickel allergy, is to apply wet compresses on them. This can actually do more good than many might think at first. Wet compresses can aid in decreasing the feelings of itchiness and assist patients in drying out unpleasant blisters. 

To make the most effective wet compress for a nickel allergy, patients will want to take a clean cloth and soak it in tap water or alternatively in Burow's solution. This easily available over-the-counter solution is comprised of aluminum acetate. When the compresses dry out, patients will need to change them after re-wetting the cloth. In theory, individuals can use this home remedy as often as they like daily.
