According to CBS, there is a new word for when your legs get too hot because you are balancing a laptop on them: toasted leg syndrome. Â How dare you laugh! Â It is a serious condition and it has already affected ten people in the entire world in the last three years! Â According to reports, toasted leg syndrome is defined as “an unusual-looking mottled skin condition caused by long-term heat exposure.” Â It can also be caused by heating pads and other seemingly harmless heating devices. Â In rare cases, it can cause permanent darkening of the skin and even cause damage leading to skin cancer. Â Make sure to use a laptop desk or another kind of heat-absorbing shield when working on your laptop. Â Problem solved… but unfortunately for those afflicted, toasted leg syndrome is here to stay.
