Wow that delicious margarita can give you a rash??

I don't know about you, but I love a delicious margarita...but you gotta be careful of MARGARITA DERMATITIS


Never heard of it?  Me either but it sounds funky.


According to "Shape" magazine, if you get lime (from the marg or whatever) on your skin & it is exposed to the sun...it can result in your skin turning brown/purple and EVEN blister.  Some say it looks like poison ivy.

 

If it's ID'd in the first 24-48 hours, a steroid can treat it.  Otherwise you gotta let it fade on it's own, which can take weeks to months!  Not cute.
