Allergy suffers have to fear more than pollen this spring according to Dr. Todd Rosengart of Vitals. The gadgets and gizmos that technology fans use on a daily basis like iPods, cell phones and other items can also be sources of allergic reaction.

"In addition to the typical pollen-producing allergies that are rampant during the months of spring, technophiles should take caution that some of their favorite gadgets may be the culprit of certain allergy symptoms," said Dr. Todd Rosengart, Chief Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stony Brook University Medical Hospital and Chief Medical Advisor of MDX Medical, which created Vitals.

Cell phones for example can affect users who are sensitive to metals and minerals used in manufacturing. Nickel is called one of the leading causes of skin allergies and it is used in cell phone batteries and can lead to contact dermatitis of users. Cell phones and iPod can cause allergic individuals to develop skin bumps or rashes after prolonged use.
