Move over Tide Pods: 'Condom snorting challenge' latest trend to go viral

Credit PA

In the viral videos, social media users put an unwrapped condom in one of their nostrils and inhale, until the condom comes back out of their mouths.

Health officials reported more than 40 cases of teens in 2018 alone getting sick from the highly concentrated detergent that can cause chemical burns when ingested. In a column titled "Condom Snorting Challenge: Why You Should Not Inhale Condoms". "With potentially fatal results", Dr. Carol Cooper told United Kingdom news company The Sun.

Despite having been round more than a decade, the so-called "Condom Challenge" is making a comeback.

If you search YouTube, the only new videos mentioning the challenge are news reports saying that it's the latest internet trend.

And Mourinho, speaking after the game, was full of praise for the way his players conducted themselves in the first half. He is the 28th player to reach three figures for goals in the Premier League and the first player from Belgium to do so.

Texas parents are among those being warned of the craze, with education specialist Stephen Enriquez telling Fox San Antonio: 'Because these days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers.

YouTube is working to remove all challenge videos.

"The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke", he added. Another woman accidentally swallowed the condom and it blocked her appendix, leading to appendicitis.

Much like people know in their hearts that they shouldn't eat Tide Pods or inhale copious amounts of cinnamon, people must realize that snorting condoms is a awful idea. A condom, comprised of latex, rubber and covered in spermicide, can damage the inner lining of the nose. The challenge is extremely risky and even caught the attention of the American Association of Poison Control Centers, which warned about the risks of social media craze. The report also cites an article from 2013, which says that one of the most alarming risks of inhaling a condom is the possibility that it goes down the wrong pipe, and end up to your lungs.
