Condom snorting is the latest viral challenge for teens

Another medical report chronicles the woe of a 26-year-old African woman who swallowed a condom for the same reason and got appendicitis when a condom fragment got stuck in her appendix.

It should go without saying, of course, that snorting condoms is risky. Or your lungs and throat, for that matter.

The challenge first emerged in 2007 but has resurfaced with videos showing the disturbing process appearing on YouTube. In the condom snorting challenge, a person opens a condom and snorts it through one nostril and pulls it through their mouth, thus completing the "condom snorting challenge".

"You are literally putting something down your nose, which connects to your mouth, which connects to your trachea", Dr. Ammar Ali, an emergency room physician at Beaumont Health, told CBS Detroit.

The party trick could cause you to choke on the spot. This could lead to choking, or even more long-term consequences. Lee says only prescribed nasal sprays should enter your nostrils. It's a delicate system that's not created to take in condoms. She spent six months with a fever and a cough before doctors finally surgically removed the condom. This is a bad idea, kids. One 2016 Nigerian study pointed out that 62% of complications that developed from people trying to pulling things out of their noses were the result of untrained professionals doing the job.

It may sound like a "Mad Libs" version of a '90s after-school special, but it is actually happening: Teenagers are snorting condoms on the internet. Not only do kids risk choking on the condoms, but according to Forbes, the challenge also carries the risk of allergic reactions and infection.

A different "condom challenge" made the rounds back in 2015, involving videos of water-filled condoms being dropped on people's heads, drenching them, reported The Debrief.

While it sounds like an April Fool's joke, educators are warning about a "condom challenge" being spread online by YouTube videos and social media.
