Today I Learned #5

Dad and I usually get rashes in winters, eczema you call it. While we were discussing my 3-month-old nephew’s rashes, Dad said it must be the clothes. The little one was getting all red wherever his furry blanket touched him. Dad pointed at the elastic cuffs of his sweatsuit and said “it’s not the allergy , it’s the electricity”.
Strange as it may sound, he explained how there was the rubber elastic material that was creating tiny sparks of electricity which were actually burning his skin on the wrists and ankles. The itching made it seem like an allergy, but now I know better.
