Since the day mobile phones first launched years ago they have induced a rash of stupidity in users. I guess I can see where the phones could actually cause a skin rash as well. The British Association of Dermatologists issued a warning to mobile phone users that the handsets could cause a skin rash.

The association says that too much use of the mobile phone could be causing the rashes. The rash itself is described as itchy and red, typically occurs on the cheek or ear depending on where the phone touches the user.

Up to 30% of the UK population is allergic to nickel, which is suspected to be the ultimate cause of the rash in users. I guess a rash from your mobile is better than cancer.
