Mom warns parents about "Deodorant Challenge" after daughter suffers burns

Ellie Prescott could be left needing a skin graft after a group former friends sprayed Lynx deodorant on her arm at close range

"For any parents who have children, please, please sit them down and show them these pictures", Prescott posted.

Ellie's injury was so bad she still is suffering the effects three weeks later.

This is not the first time parents have been concerned about some challenge that has either taken place in school or gone viral on social media.

One person wrote: 'I am 44 and this was a craze at my secondary school over 30 years ago.

"When I show people my injury they lift up their sleeves and show that they've all had it done too".

Jamie Prescott, 42, says 15-year-old Ellie may need a skin graft after taking part in the so-called "deodorant challenge".

Despite the recent Facebook post, the deodorant challenge is actually not a new craze.

In a Facebook post over the weekend, a mother warned parents about the "dangerous" and "hazardous" game teenagers are getting involved in.

Is there anything better than pizza? So far, the only confirmed restaurants that are delivering beer are the Pizza Hut at 250 S. Six beer options are available: Budweiser, Bud Light, Blue Moon, Coors Light, Miller High Life and Shock Top.

So far the alarming post has received over 3,000 shares and have hundreds of comments from parents raising their concern over the fact the trend is still popular with school children.

According to Yahoo.com, the new trend, "The Deodorant Challenge" involves spraying deodorant on someone for as long as possible.

"Ellie's injuries are horrendous and if we can stop others doing it that will be great", the mother of three posted. This one, like the others can cause some serious harm- resulting in awful chemical burns that can weep yellow pus for weeks.

"Other children have asked what's wrong with her arm but they have also had it done and show their scars", she said.

"As you can see from the yellow padding, it is still weeping excessively".

She also explained that Ellie was new to her current school where the incident occurred but was adamant that the unsafe game was also happening at her previous school. Ellie met friends at the local park and they asked her to do the challenge - which she hadn't heard of.' Ellie's burn is a form of frostbite.

Speaking to Somerset Live more than two weeks after her daughter was injured, Jamie said: "She still regularly has to see a practice nurse and go to the surgery once a week".

"It's just horrendous and needs stopping".
