SHOCKING: see a challenge kids undertake, that is highly dangerous, read how you can stop your kid from doing this!

Looks like every month,  most kids gets attend that challenges them to do this that can be extremely harmful to their health,  much more than they imagined. 

A recent challenge  making rounds the internet, is of salt and ice on the skin!

this one has been around for five years, but it’s making a comeback that endangers anyone who partakes in it.

Kids pour salt on their skin and put ice directly on it,  then see how strong they to overcome the burning from this combination. 

Video of the challenge is in circulation and more kids get moved into joining and trying it out. 

It might not sound like salt and ice can not do much damage, but together, they can cause great harm.

The salt supercools the ice, making it a lot cooler (1 degree F) than it would be without it (32 degrees F).

Disturbingly, kids partispate without knowing how dangerously it could affect their health. 

It's essentially giving yourself frostbite, and the effects can be worse than 3rd-degree burns.

"Some of the pictures you'll see on the internet and YouTube, those kids have third-degree burns," Brian Wagers, a pediatrician explained. 

"I mean it turns it to leather essentially. So you lose the blood vessels that are in there. You lose sensation, because of the nerve endings... You'll never have like hair if you did it on your arms. So you'll have a bald patch."

Dozens of English children have been hospitalized, with schools and medical bodies issuing a warning.

a spokesperson stated,  and further said:

"It’s important for schools keep a close eye on all emerging trends and we welcome the police’s warning to head teachers.

The rise of social media has contributed to increasing peer pressure amongst children and this ‘craze’ is another clear example of the risks.”

Parents should follow these 4 steps to stop their kids from playing and treating them if they do.

First, tell your kids to refuse the game. Show them pictures of the aftermath.

Don't judge others or antagonize those who play. Just walk away.

Keep an eye out for these strange marks on your children and their friends as well. If their friends have them, be cautious about the time they spend out of sight.

Offer up less dangerous and more fun activities to do instead.

If you find someone hurt by the challenge, apply cool water on the affected area for ten minutes. Don't use balms or creams. Those can make things worse.

If the injury looks gruesome or deep, contact a hospital or ambulance immediately. Infections happen.

But most importantly, stay proactive, talk to your kids, and keep an eye on what they're doing. They might not realize how dangerous this activity is.
