Posted on Wednesday, October 22 2008 @ 05:15:42 CEST by

Skin specialists warn metals used in phones, such as nickel, can lead to skin conditions:
Skin specialists are reporting a new phenomenon they are dubbing 'mobile phone dermatitis' where metals used in the phone handset is irritating the skin on the face.

Around one third of people are sensitive to nickel which is used extensively in mobile phone handsets, including the buttons and the surround of the screen.

All doctors should be alert that these people are at risk of developing dermatitis on their face if they use their phone regularly, the British Association of Dermatologists has said.

The skin can become red, inflammed, blistered, dry and cracked in these cases.
