A chef has been forced to quit his job after it emerged that he was allergic to knives and forks.
Cameron Robertson, 21, of Tillicoultry in Clackmannanshire, Scotland found that work became impossible because he came out in an itchy rash whenever he came into contact with cutlery.
Medical tests later showed that he was allergic to metal, making a steel-lined kitchen environment one of the worst places to work, according to the Daily Mail.
Robertson told the paper: "I trained as a chef for two years before getting a full-time job and it was then that my hands and arms started to itch.
"I love cooking so was really upset, but everything in the kitchen was metal, so it was a real problem.
"I can use cutlery to eat a meal during the day, but if I was to be using it all day - like I did when I was training as a chef - that would cause an allergic reaction."
He has since tried working as a builder but found that he is also allergic to concrete.
