Child burned from spraying deodorant on skin

The deodorant challenge sees teens filming themselves holding the spray a few inches above them before pressing and holding the aerosol to the skin for as long as possible

Ellie Prescott from Bristol could be left needing a skin graft after a group former friends sprayed Lynx deodorant on her arm at close range, leaving it blistered and burnt.

The worrying and risky craze has returned to schools around the country and one mum has taken to Facebook to encourage parents to stop their children trying the hazardous "challenge".

In a post on Facebook, which has been shared by almost 3,500 people, Jamie Prescott wrote that "the deodorant challenge" has become common place amongt the town's teenagers. The result is an aerosol burn, or cryogenic burn, which is frostbite caused by the supercooled propellant. "These are the damaging results of something known as 'The Deodorant Challenge" which is now doing the rounds in Yate and literally involves spraying deodorant on to someone else for as long as possible.... Three weeks ago she and a friend did the challenge, and now Ellie is left with a horrific-looking chemical burn that she says is still oozing after all this time.

"I seldom rarely do this, but on this occasion, I would like this post spread wide and far.For any parents who have children, please, please sit them down and show them these pictures.These are the damaging results of something known as "The Deodorant Challenge" which is now doing the rounds in Yate and literally involves spraying deodorant on to someone else for as long as possible.It's that simple and results in severe secondary burns".

A YATE mum has shared pictures of her daughter's injuries to warn others about the dangers of a new playground craze.

MPs to vote on newspaper regulation which could suffocate free press
The requirement to pay costs - which was tabled by Labour deputy leader, Tom Watson - would stand even if the publisher won. The history of attempts to protect victims of press intrusion is littered with failure.

Photos of Ellie's injuries, which Ms Prescott posted on Facebook to warn other mums and dads, have been shared more than 2,500 times since last Friday. After videos of the challenge were uploaded on social media, several youngsters started trying the act risking choking themselves.

The post has since been shared nearly 3,000 times. "It is one of the stupidest things I've ever done".

Another said: "Omg this is terrible". It's it so ridiculous, why are the teachers not aware about this. "I hope your daughter improves soon". I was going to the hospital every two days for about three months to get the bandages changed and I was still going to hospital after six months of doing it.

This latest craze joins the condom challenge and eating Tide Pods as the latest dumb thing kids are doing. Let us know in the comments.
