Last week I was diagnosed with Allergic Contact Dermatitis. Apparently contact to nickel, can be a cause. Got me wondering...

Good question, I do not know. Hopefully not nickel as it's a nice knob to touch.

I have this but with steel/iron. The Puma knob is aluminium so we're ok. OEM I think it's anodised or painted, there is certainly a coating of some kind
