Stephen Enriquez, an education specialist in Texas, states: 'There are all kinds of drugs and kids are clever, so it's just really what are our kids doing?
According to one local TV station, the stunt is being done by teens.
"These days our teens are doing everything for likes, views and subscribers". However, it only has become viral when YouTuber Savannah Strong posts a video of her snorting a condom while Taylor Swift's "22" plays in the background.
Lee is an associate professor of worldwide health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. "The condom could easily get stuck in your nose or your throat, blocking your breathing or causing you to choke".
Lee pointed to two medical case studies involving condom mishaps.
There's also the possibility that the condoms will be inhaled into the lungs.
"Would it really be worth all that just to get more like and views?"
Experts warned that challenge could cause poisoning, with both the capsule contents and chemical membrane that contains them considered toxic to human health. While the idea has been floating around like a condom in a toilet for a while now, its recent social media virulence has brought on a host of would-be Internet celebrity copycats. "No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?"
Now teens are taking on an even grosser challenge in pursuit of Internet fame - and this one is making stomachs turn, as it is as disgusting as it is unsafe.
"The nasal passages and sinuses have special cells that can be damaged if objects such as condoms are placed in them, potentially leading to a bacterial or fungal infection", he told CBS News.
The condom snorting challenge comes with a number of health risks, including choking..
The weird challenge has been around for at least 11 years - there is a 2007 YouTube clip of the challenge being performed.
But over the past five years, USA poison control centers have received only one report of a condom inhalation.
