Kids across the nations participate in a dangerous challenge

There may be another possible trend coming about– the deodorant challenge. The deodorant challenge entails spraying deodorant directly onto the skin to see how long a person can tolerate the spraying.

On May 10, the challenge left one child with second degree burns, needing possible skin grafts. Many parents are saying that their children participated in the challenge before it was widely known, and their children were also left injured.

The number of kids doing this challenge is currently unknown as there is no data, but in England, the challenge has said to be “doing its rounds” by the mother of a child who participated in the challenge in May.

Trends do travel fast, so it’s unknown whether the challenge will blow up like other challenges in the past did.
