I don't think they'll do more harm to the skin and there are people who
continue to use them religously. I used them for 10 years because there were
no other choices - but I'm allergic to the metal and they bothered *me* quite
a bit. I guess one thing for you is to find out if you have an allergic
reaction to them.

proven right or pleasantly surprised.
