Chilling warning over unsafe new challenge

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". A mom in Britain is warning other parents about a new challenge that left her severely burned.

A Facebook post from last week is going viral, drawing attention to the challenge.

The challenge involves spraying deodorant onto someone's skin for as long as possible, and can result in severe burning. This one, like the others can cause some serious harm- resulting in disgusting chemical burns that can weep yellow pus for weeks.

"I would like this post spread wide and far", she wrote. For any parents who have...

"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", she wrote.

Prescott said the injuries might require a skin graft three weeks after her daughter sustained the burns.

It has been shared more than 2,500 times since being posted on May 4.

Another said: "Omg can't believe what I'm reading". My nephew was doing this when he started secondary school. "I hope your daughter improves soon".

Jamie Prescott added a new photo.

"I did this exact thing over 10 years ago when I was at school", Chris Clark wrote. According to the post, the wound may necessitatea skin graft in order to heal. Sure she's is left with a big scar but she uses camouflage make up to cover it up. I didn't know it would do this to me or I wouldn't (have) done it. Ellie may have very well been injured by horsing around with deodorant, but the prevalence of the Deodorant Challenge and similar challenges can oft be exaggerated by the media. Have your children been talking about it at their school?

First it was the Tide Pods Challenge, where teenagers supposedly dared each other to eat detergent pods (and risk gruesome esophageal injuries in the process). after that it was the Condom Challenge, where jokesters snorted condoms up their noses (risking choking).
