If you thought the biggest risk of a margarita on a hot summer day was a horrific hangover, then think again — a cocktail in (or on) the wrong hands could result in severe burns.
TikTok-user Shana, who goes by the handle @theglutenfreetravelagent, posted a video warning lime-based cocktail lovers about the hidden dangers behind the popular garnish.
Phytophotodermatitis is a surprisingly common skin reaction that ranges from a painless pigmentation to excruciating blisters, Clarissa Yang, MD, chair of dermatology at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, previously told The Post.
Yang said some reactions look like streaks, because lime juice may have run down the arm, or just brown spots, where some juice may have splattered. Lime reactions are the most publicized food to cause the reaction, but other foods that can cause a reaction include parsley, carrots, celery and mango peels.
