Re: Titanium Plates, allergic reaction?
What you have sounds more like a reaction to something you touched or put on your skin. The titanium hardware used is so far in your body that it is not next to your skin. It's likely a hardware allergy (which is rare) would cause more more significant systemic symptoms.
