That little itch could be telling you something. You may be allergic to your iPad. Your iPad could give you a rash if you have a nickel allergy. Nickel is one of the most common causes of allergic contact dermatitis. According to Fox News, it happened to an 11-year-old boy in San Diego.

If you are like me, you spend hours on your tablet and the first generation iPads do contain nickel. Nickel is also found in many common items including jewelry, coins, zippers, cellphones and eyeglass frames.

THERE IS A SIMPLE SOLUTION

Using a case can protect you against contact with nickel in the iPad.
