Dr Karen Boyle from the Greater Baltimore Medical Centre revealed that skinny jeans could cause meralgia paraesthetica, a condition in which the nerve in outer thigh is damaged.

Symptoms of the condition include burning or tingly sensation in the outer thigh, pain in the groin spreading to the buttocks and hyper sensitivity to warm water.

Dr Boyle said that wearing high heels aggravates the problem and continuing to wear the skinny jeans and ignoring the pain could lead to permanent nerve damage.
