A San Diego boy was recently hospitalized with an itchy, scaly rash that doctors couldn’t explain. After the usual treatment failed to cure his allergic reaction, Dr. Sharon Jacob and her team conducted a skin test that revealed a nickel allergy, which led to the discovery that the rash was caused by the family iPad.
After testing the iPad, doctors detected a chemical compound in its external nickel coating that caused the boy’s rash. The boy had been using the iPad daily, and his condition improved after storing the iPad in a protective case.
So, a word to the wise: take care when using your personal electronics bare-skinned. We all remember the cellphone tumor craze that freaked everyone out a decade ago. Doctors say that nickel rashes aren’t particularly life-threatening, although they may cause great discomfort and mandatory treatment with steroids and antibiotics, especially if the rash becomes infected.
Special care should also be taken when using unbranded or knockoff electronics, as there have reports of utilising banned or dangerous metals in the manufacturing process.
