PlayStation gets a skin disorder

Quote:
A new skin condition, believed to be caused by excessive use of games consoles, has been identified by skin specialists in Switzerland, according to the BBC.

The condition, dubbed 'PlayStation palmar hidradenitis', was discovered when a 12-year old girl went to hospital with red, sore lumps on her hands. Doctors at Geneva University Hospital concluded that she had 'idiopathic eccrine hidradenitis' - a condition that is usually found on the palms of hands and the soles of feet of children who take part in heavy exercise such as jogging, and is believed to be caused by intense sweating. However, for the condition to affect only the hands is very unusual.

First off... LOL!

Secondly, "PlayStation palmar hidradenitis" - does this mean that you could only get it from PlayStations?

So does this means that if you get your hands sore accompanied by excessive sweating from "any" form of "entertainment" as they eloquently put it, you can call it <Whatever you were doing or Caused it> palmar hidradenitis?

Thanks Aaron! One of your better, truly entertaining and informative post

This is as weird as the story about a breakout of "Mat Herpes" in the high school wrestling arena.

I always hated how my hands get sweaty when doing stuff like that. At least it is not as bad as the Tree-Man though.

Apparently he got most of them removed. But he is actually better off now, because of all the popularity.
