Montana Brews and BBQ: Beware of Lime Burns
No click bait here. Limes causing burns on your hands is a real thing and since Montana Brews and BBQ is Saturday, I thought I'd pass along this fun fact I learned recently.
The juice of lemons and limes cause a chemical reaction with your skin which can make them hypersensitive to UV rays and cause some serious burns. I mean, big, painful blisters. I can't legally post other peoples pictures, but if you're morbidly curious about how serious these burns can be, just search for phytophotodermatitis and you'll see what I mean.
To be fair, you're not going to encounter this problem if you just shove a lime wedge in your Corona, but if you're repeatedly cutting limes and getting the juice on your hands while outside, you can be setting yourself up for some serious pain and ugliness.
