Doctors say the boy tested positive for nickel and they believe it came from the iPad.

In fact, a number of people have reported developing a rash with regular use of an iPad or iPhone

One woman says her iPhone left an impression on her face.

Doctors suggest using a smart case to provide overall coverage and limit exposure to the device itself
