Do you have an unexplained rash on your body? Odd as it sounds, the problem may be your Apple tablet. You might be allergic to it. According to Pediatrics, cases of allergic contact dermatitis have been on the rise thanks to materials used on smartphones and tablets. One possible explanation is the recent use of nickel on mobile devices, which leaves an uncomfortable red, itchy rash.
The report cites one case of an 11 year old treated for contact dermatitis. The doctors tested his first generation Apple iPad and found that it contained nickel. Then they told the child to put a case on his tablet, and once he did, the rash improved quite a bit. There was a case back in February, where fitness band manufacturer FitBit had to recall their Force wristband after many users got a rash and a case of contact dermatitis as well. It happens.
So now you know that your rash may be related to your device. And if you suspect this, put a case on it and see if it improves. If it doesn’t improve, you might want to visit the doctor. But hopefully we just solved your rash problem for you. You are welcome.
