Allergic reaction to gold wedding band, no allergy to gold earrings. Causes and treatment?

I am 33 and wear gold wedding bands on my left finger . Recently, within the past 3 months, I have noticed a type of allergic reaction to my rings. I also wear a silver ring on my right hand on the next to last finger and have not had any reaction. Could there be a specific reason why all the sudden I would be having an allergic reaction? I also wear gold earrings and have not had this problem with my ears. Thank you.

may be something else because if it is reaction to gold it will be every where part to which gold is exposed
the other thing comes to me is the joint of the ring filled with other material than gold
you can check it
in mean time take tab claritin daily for 10 days and apply diprovate ointmenyt on effected area
