Easter Egg Hunts Can Lead to Skin Problems in Some Children

Some kids and adults are allergic to nickel and may develop rashes when they come in close contact with it.

They also may react to foods such as peanuts, chocolate, oats and processed American cheese, which contain a significant amount of nickel.


A new Pediatric Dermatology study presents 4 clinical cases of hypersensitivity in children due to chocolate consumption at Easter. They all developed dermatitis flares approximately 48 to 96 hours after the holiday and admitted to binging on chocolate during their Easter Egg hunts.
