Rare disease causes skin to melt away in the sun

Didn't even know such a disease existed....

Quote:
ARARAS, Brazil (AP) — This is a village where the people melt away.

Tucked into the sunbaked rolling hills of Brazil's midwest, Araras is home to what is thought to be the largest single group of people suffering from a rare inherited skin disease known as xeroderma pigmentosum, or "XP."

Those with the disease are extremely sensitive to ultraviolet rays from sunlight and highly susceptible to skin cancers. It robs victims of the ability to repair the damage caused by the sun
Pictures might be graphic for some;

There are many other very disfiguring diseases out there if you want to learn more. Google porphyria or harlequin icthyosis if you want to see more.

I remember seeing this disease on a talk show, I believe it was Maury. A kid had this disease or something very similar and couldn't go outside without being completely covered up. The kid had to cover his face with something similar to a welders face shield.

poor people - rather than saying 'oh man, that's gross, wish i didn't click that' why don't you think of the poor people who were born like this, at no fault of their own.

Did not click link. I've had the displeasure of seeing the effects of flesh eating bacteria. I don't know what's worse; getting eaten alive by something you can't even see or have flesh being melted off by the very thing that made life on Earth possible.

Sad.

ya, because most people are dickheads, as proven by the kind of selfish responses here.

people born with disabilities should be provided with all the help they need to live a more comfortable life - they did nothing to deserve their fate, whereas most dicks on this earth treat others like shit and then bitchy, whine, and cry about the most unimportant things around, so ya, i hate 'people', but i have empathy for those born with disabilties
