achoo! cell phone"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," says Dr. Todd Rosengart, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stony Brook University Medical Hospital and Chief Medical Advisor of MDX Medical.

Exposure to radiation and microwaves from cell phones may lead to electromagnetic sensitivity and cause skin rashes, fatigue, and headaches.

For allergy sufferers, cell phone use can trigger allergies and make seasonal allergy symptoms worse, according to rehabpub.com.

My ten year old daughter has asthma and severe allergies and just yesterday at her Allery and Asthma Specialist appt. I asked about the rash on the right side of her face. I was informed that she was allergic to the metal in her cell phone. She said they have hypoallergenic phones, but my company had never heard of anything. Anybody know anymore about this?
