“Mobile Phone Dermatitis” — What?!
If the constant talk of cell phones causing cancer isn’t enough, a group of British dermatologists now says your phone could also give you a skin rash.
The doctors say spending too much time with the device pressed against your face could cause something called “mobile phone dermatitis.” It happens when the body develops an allergic reaction to the nickel-filled surface of the phones, they say, and has been seen on cheeks and ears around the world.
But wait, there’s more!
“In theory it could even occur on the fingers if you spend a lot of time texting on metal menu buttons,” the doctors’ statement says.
Wonder if there’s any research showing how many ulcers are being caused by all the worry over cell phone health studies…
