A warning has been issued to parents about the latest social media challenge making the rounds. It is called the Deodorant Challenge and can result in nasty chemical burns.

Teens are holding cans of aerosol deodorant just above their skin and spraying for as long as possible. Of course, they are posting the challenges and resulting injuries online for everyone to see.

The challenge isn't actually new but it seems to be rising in popularity again.

Other dangerous social media challenges have included the eraser challenge and salt and ice challenge.
