If you own an iPad, and have a skin rash… the two may not be independent of each other.
The Pediatrics Medical journal recently featured the case study of an 11-year old boy who was being treated for allergic contact dermatitis in San Diego.
Doctors found that the boy’s first generation iPad,.. which he used everyday,… contained nickel in its outside coating.
They advised him to refrain from using the tablet PC altogether.
But before you run to your local Apple store to file a complaint, it should be pointed out that it’s not yet certain whether all iPads contain nickel.
Apple said in a statement that its products are made with the highest quality materials,.. and added that allergies like the one reported are extremely rare.
