Laptops can cause permanent skin damage

Posted on Wednesday, October 06 2010 @ 00:04:44 CEST by


Swiss scientists have documented the "Toasted Skin Syndrome", a condition that occurs when skin is exposed to excessive heat from a laptop for long periods of time. To prevent permanent damage to your skin, it's recommended to use a heat barrier between your lap and your notebook. Ten cases have been reported since 2004, the most recent one being a 12-year old boy who had "mottled" skin after playing video games on his laptop every day, hours at a time for several months.
Scientists in Switzerland are calling it the "Toasted Skin Syndrome," and the condition occurs when skin is exposed to heat from a laptop computer for long periods of time. An article published Monday in the journal Pediatrics documents a case of a 12-year-old boy who had "mottled" skin on his left thigh after playing computer games every day, hours at a time for several months.

The report indicates that he is the youngest in 10 reported cases of laptop-induced dermatosis since 2004.
