Be Wary

  • Dec 30, 2010
I received the Qlink pendant (pictured black model)as a gift several years ago. I work all day with computers so thought it couldn't hurt, and might actually help. I wore it religiously for 3-4 years. To this day I can't say for certain if it helped protect me from certain stresses, gave me more energy or improved my mental acuity. I "wanted" it to work so perhaps the placebo effect did generate some positive results.

Right before I stopped wearing it, I had started to develop some irritation on my chest where it rested under my shirt. If I stopped wearing it, it would clear up. When I put the Qlink back on, the irritation would return. So I stopped wearing it completely--or took to wearing it over my shirt on occasion. After no sign of the irritation for a year or so, it began to come back. It is a little patch between my pecs that gets red and itchy. I've not worn the Qlink at all for over a year and it is still there. At first I tried creams to sooth it with mixed results. It comes and goes seemingly at random, but now is in evidence more and more of the time. I don't know if there was something in the black plastic housing of the Qlink that caused this long-term condition, but I would caution others that are considering buying this model, or have it already, to think twice before using it.

Sounds like it could be a simple fungal issue--if the pendant rests squarely on your skin, which naturally perspires a little, and the moisture has nowhere to go, it could absolutely cause a little itchy red flakiness. I had to stop wearing a couple of my favorite rings (totally different materials) for this reason--just a spot of skin where not enough air flows. Just a thought. :-)

That is a consideration Jennifer, but considering that I haven't worn it in months and the irritated area still comes and goes, then I think it may be something else. But I doubt it is a coincidence that they show up in the exact spot the pendent would rest.

Eek, I misunderstood, I thought you'd still been wearing it...that's not a very happy development, then! (If it is a fungus issue--I know those can come and go too--have you tried a drop of tea tree oil in a little bit of some other oil, like olive or grapeseed, to rub onto the spot once a day or so?...bearing in mind that I am NOT a doctor or licensed medical professional of any kind! :-)

Tea tree oil, coconut oil, oatmeal lotion -- a number of things. They may help, but it eventually returns. Could just be I'm getting old... ;)
