Jul 14, Suggested Nickel Allergy Triggered By iPad

In recents reports, it has been said that nickel in several personal electronic devices have triggered nickel allergies. A recent story seems to confirm these reports. An 11 year old boy, from San Diego, was treated for an itchy rash, at Rady Children’s hospital. The boy’s iPad was tested, and was found to contain a chemical compound found in nickel. After putting a protective case on his iPad, his rash improved. The iPad was an early model, and it is uncertain if other iPads or Apple devices contain nickel. It is also uncertain how often this occurs for other nickel allergy sufferers. It is good to be aware of a potential connection.
