Rash warning from laptops6th October 2010
Doctors have warned that the heat generated by the underside of a laptop is enough to cause a nasty rash, especially if used against bare skin for hours at a time.
The journal Pediatrics reported the case of a 12-year-old who developed discoloured skin after playing games for hours although the condition called erythema ab igne is unlikely to cause any long term ill effects, according to dermatologists. The condition is also seen in older people who use hot water bottles to keep warm.
