Had titanium plates and screws in neck, have rashes, lost voice, allergic to jewelry. Why?

I had titanium plates and screws put in my neck on 12/18/12 and since then I have a horrible rash and the Dermatologist said it is Guttate Psoriasis and could be from the surgery. I have also lost my voice and can barely talk at times. I have spoken with my surgeon and he wants to take out the plates in June. i do have a severe allergy to jewlery. Could all of this be from the plates? my e-mail is YYYY@YYYY

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Allergy seems likely from the plate...psoriasis may not be...
Even otherwise, give the benefit of doubt and get it removed...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
