Cell phone rash....

Are you allergic to your cell phone? Doctors in the UK have recently discovered a new condition called "mobile phone dermatitis".


Doctors are being warned to be alert to a new allergic skin disorder,
caused by mobile phones, according to the British Association of Dermatologists.

A new phenomenon called “mobile phone dermatitis” has been discovered,
in which people who spend long periods of time on their mobile phone develop an
allergic reaction to the phone’s nickel surface.

The problem was identified in several published case reports of
patients with unexplained rashes on their face and ear. Closer investigation
revealed that the reaction was caused by nickel in the mobile phone handsets,
where it is often found in the casing or buttons, particularly in the most
fashionable models.
