PlayStation Palmar Hidradenitis

A new skin disorder caused by use of games consoles has been identified by skin specialists, says the BBC. The condition, which experts have dubbed PlayStation Palmar Hidradenitis, is now described in the British Journal of Dermatology. The site says that researchers have outlined the case of a 12-year-old girl who attended a Swiss hospital with intensely painful sores on the palms of her hands. The girl, who had been using a games console regularly, recovered fully after 10 days of abstinence. The condition is is thought to be linked to intense sweating.

Girl. Games console. Yeah right.
