Skin rash WARNING
The toasted skin rash was caused by prolonged use of a
It may be called a laptop, but there could be a price to pay
for using it on your lap regularly, say doctors.
The heat generated by the underside of the machine is enough
to cause a nasty rash, especially if used against bare skin
for hours at a time.
The journal Pediatrics reported the case of a 12-year-old
who developed discoloured skin after playing games for
The rash should cause no lasting ill-effects, said a UK
The full name for the condition is erythema ab igne, and
used to be common in people exposed to heat as part of their
work, such as bakers and silversmiths.
It is sometimes seen in elderly patients who use hot water
bottles to keep warm.
But now the condition, also called "toasted skin syndrome",
is being seen in some laptop users.
Laptops can raise the temperature of parts of their case to
above 50 degrees Celsius.

If left in contact with skin, this can result in a mottled
appearance which does not immediately disappear, even after
the machine has been removed.
In more serious cases of erythema, the skin can be left
darkened, although not usually permanently.
The study by researchers at University Hospital Basel is not
the first to note this problem. Other reported cases in
medical journals included an American law student who spent
six hours a day with her computer resting on her lap.
Dr Bav Shergill, a consultant dermatologist at Brighton
University Hospitals NHS Trust, said that people who
developed the rash should not be overly concerned.
"I would expect it to resolve fairly quickly, with no long
"It's the same condition I used to see as a junior doctor in
elderly ladies who spent all day sitting too close to
electric bar fires.
"If you use a laptop like this every day, there could be
discolouration, but even this should clear up."

This time, I want to relate to you an anecdote that some of
you might have heard before. The story is about a man whose
family had nothing to eat. The man just had an old gun and
three bullets. So, to fend for his starving family, the man
decided that he would go out hunting. He wanted to kill some
wild animal for dinner. As he set off, the first animal he
came across was a rabbit. He targeted it but missed it.
The rabbit ran away. Next he shot at the squirrel he
spotted. He fired the second bullet he had at it but again
hard luck- he missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a
hole in the nearby tree. He felt bad about losing his
targets but kept moving on. As he went further, he saw a big
wild turkey. Since he had only one bullet remaining, he got
perplexed. A voice spoke to him and said, "First Pray to
Lord, then aim high and lastly stay focused." Just then he
saw a deer. Surely deer would make a better kill than the
turkey. He brought the gun down to aim at the deer, but
instantly he heard a hissing sound near him. And to his
shock there was a snake right next to him, about to bite
him. Naturally he brought the gun down further to shoot the
snake. But before he could press the gunís trigger, the
voice again instructed him to pray, to aim high and stay
focused. The man decided to pay heed to this voice. He
prayed to Lord for help and guidance. He found his heart
telling him to target the turkey sitting on the tree. So he
turned his gun to shoot the turkey and shot it. The bullet
bounced off the turkey and killed the deer too. The handle
fell off the gun and hit the snake in the head, killing it
instantly. The man had taken guidance from Lord so he ended
up successful. He returned home with a dead deer and a
turkey for his family to eat.
The above story might seem implausible. However it has a
moral. The story teaches that before you undertake any
mission, seek Lordís help and guidance. Beseech Him and
pray. Then set your goals high and struggle to attain them.
And all through, stay focused on God and continue seeking
His help. The story also shows that one must get over his
past and focus on present. Let the past failures serve as
opportunities for learning and growth. In the above story,
the man was likely to feel discouraged because of his
previous failures. He had missed two targets before. He had
only one bullet left. But the man let the past be past.
Snake in the story symbolizes the Satan, the devil who
always tries to distract us when we try to stay focused and
be on the right track. But those who strive to stay in
Allahís protection manage to rise out unharmed by devilís
attacks. As in the above story, the snake died simply
because the man listened to Godís advice.
So friends, live every day and every moment to its fullest.
When you realize that Allah is All-Powerful, All-Merciful
and All-Generous, all of this at the same time, then how can
you possibly be pessimistic. Put your trust in Allah, and
hope the best from Him.
