If your child has an unexplained rash AND an iPad, you might need to toss the iPad, or at least put a case on it.

iPads contain nickel, and nickel is one of the most common allergy-inducing metals..



Recent reports in medical journals detail nickel allergies from a variety of personal electronic devices, including laptops and cellphones. But it was an Apple iPad that caused an itchy body rash in an 11-year-old boy recently treated at a San Diego hospital, according to a report in Monday’s Pediatrics. source

Nickel rashes aren’t life-threatening but they can be very uncomfortable.

Thus far, Apple has had “no comment.”
