Bumps appearing all over the body, allergic to fake metals. Related?

My fiance is allergic to fake metals, so if she wears jewelry that is not real gold or silver she breaks out in these small white itchy bumps where the jewelry touched. She is so sensitive to it, that even the metal button on the inside of her jeans causes a breakout. However, recently these bumps have been appearing all over her body...trying to figure out if it is related to the metal allergy , or something different completely?

Pulmonologist 's  Response
A person who is allergic to a partiular thing may be allergic to many other allergens and it may not be possible to find out all of them. She should take a montair lc and if allergy is very bothersome, a short course of oral steroids. She should get her IgE levels tested. She may go in for sensetivity testing where in an attempt can be made to find out various substances to which she is allergic. If required she take shots of anti IgE antibodies.
