What is the danger of peeled off Teflon Layer ?

QUESTION:

Dear Debra,

I'm from Indonesia. I would like to ask you, what is the danger of using peeled off Teflon layer at rice cooker?

I just realized that my rice cooker has lost its teflon layer at the bottom of the bowl.It's now becoming bigger and bigger , an i'm still using it ...The rice cooker is purchased from local market , but under license of other country.

And now i've been suffering with some kind of allergy on my skin for months, everywhere ....i'm afraid it's relating with my rice cooker damage..as i've been on diet from many kinds of foods ..and my allergy is not going away...

Thank you very much in advance for your attention and advice

Regards, zipora e.p.

DEBRA'S ANSWER:

Lots of information on Teflon is at Q&A: Teflon on George Forman Grills?.

Personally, I wouldn't eat food cooked in a pan with chipped Teflon.
