COBALT ALLERGY


Key Allergens

Cobalt is a metal which is commonly used as a binding metal in jewellery and household objects like cutlery.

Cobalt allergy has also been noted after transplantation surgery, mostly associated with hip and knee replacements and in dental procedures. Cobalt can also be found in cosmetics, hair dyes and inks.

It is a metallic element and important constituent of vitamin B12, so it may also often be found in B12 supplements.

Associated Syndromes

Cobalt allergy is associated with allergic contact dermatitis.

Cross Reactivity

Cross reactivity to chrome and nickel is commonly seen in patients who are allergic to cobalt.
