A Caustic Challenge
Here is all you need to know. The viral challenge that took place in 2012 has made a nasty comeback for 2017. It is called the ”salt and ice challenge” where people put salt and ice on their arms.This can cause first or second-degree burns. One thing to remember if your friends challenge you. They are not your friends.
The salt causes a decrease in the temperature of the ice, creating a painful burning sensation. The viral challenge is based on who can keep the ice on the skin the longest. The interesting and uncomfortable fact about this is that the damage does not show up for some time. Therefore you have no way to figure out when to stop.
Schools and parents need to be seriously vigilant and talk to their kids before they try it. What’s next? Jump off a bridge challenge? Who comes up with this stuff?
