If you notice a rash starting to form on the side of your face where you hold your cell phone, that’s no coincidence. Dermatologists have dubbed the condition “mobile phone dermatitis.”
According to the British Association of Dermatologists, an outbreak on your ears or cheeks could be caused by the nickel surface on your cell phone. It happens wherever the skin touches the cell phone for too long. Nickel is a common metal, and is found in everything from belt buckles to coins. It’s also one of the most common causes of skin allergies.
To avoid this from happening, try using a corded headset.
