Video: Deadly Teenage Trend Is Popular Again – Parents Really Worried


There is a new teen YouTube challenge that will have you shaking your head.

The condom snorting challenge is just what it sounds like. Teens take video of themselves snorting a condom through their nose in hopes that it goes through their sinus cavities and can be pulled out of their mouths.

Snorting a condom poses not only a choking hazard but allergic reactions and infections are also a risk for these fame-seeking teens. At least two women accidentally swallowed the condoms, developing pneumonia and appendicitis.

This challenge has been around for a while and is now re-emerging. Not only is this bizarre, it is not safe. The goal is to have the video go viral on YouTube and thousands have already posted videos for this challenge.

What’s wrong with millennials?

Bruce Y. Lee, associate professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said that only nasal sprays should be used in your nose, “anything else that goes up your nose can damage the sensitive inner lining of your nose, cause an allergic reaction, or result in an infection.”
