A 15-year-old girl in England was left with horrific burns after deodorant was sprayed on her. Jamie Prescott said her daughter Ellie may need a skin graft after taking part in “The Deodorant Challenge” with her classmates.

The game involves spraying deodorant onto a person’s bare skin for as long as possible, and has left Ellie with an injury so bad it is still weeping after 3 weeks.
