Does anyone else get rashes on/inbetween their fingers from using macbooks too much? Chromium reaction?

    Could be nickel allergy, maybe the aluminium alloy contains that. I found a research paper related to that. Apparently it's somewhat common to develop allergy from macbooks. https://researchgate.net/publicatio...

    Nickel allergy itself is very common, although it's no longer used as much in things people touch regularly.

    @Demolishun there are many metals that can poison you.
    Lead - commonly used in old waterpipes - flint incident
    Copper - fungizide and old waterpipes - liver, lungs, prostata affected and can lead to merve damage

    But today most products have next to no concentration of metal that can harm you. Things with lead in them are for example protected by special paint or by leadoxides, which doesn't disolve in water.
    Just having contact with an metal doesn't make you poisoned. You have to swallow it. Contact with an metal can trigger allergies.
