Mornings with Dave & Jen

Margarita “Dermatitis”?
Margarita “Dermatitis”?

Summertime means margarita time…heck, for some of us ANYTIME is margarita time!

Did you know your favorite drink may be trying to KILL you?

Not exactly…but a new report from Shape.com says it could be trying to POISON you.

When you squeeze a lime into a drink like a margarita, a little of the oil from the lime gets on your hand.  When you drink it, the lime gets on your lips.

If you suffer from an allergy called phytophotodermatitis, when the sun hits that lime oil, it can cause a rash similar to POISON IVY. 

Scientists have nicknamed it “margarita dermatitis.”

You probably don’t know if you have it or not…but if you notice you’re getting weird blisters on your hand or mouth after you have a margarita this summer (or when you come into contact with limes), that could be the reason.

If you get the rash, don’t panic…just see your doctor who can give you something to treat it in a few days.  Otherwise, it will fade…in a few WEEKS!

Who wants a banana daiquiri?
