Beware "toasted skin syndrome," doctors warn

snip - (Reuters) - Bottom warmers in cars may ease frigid winter commutes, but dermatologists warn that extended exposure to seat heaters can lead to a skin condition called "toasted skin syndrome."

Two reports in the Archives of Dermatology describe rashes on legs that erupt by pressing against warmed-up seats for prolonged periods of time.

Toasted skin syndrome might be ugly, but it's not serious.

I thought this was a thread about brilliant scientists warning us of the dangers of sunburn.
