7-years old girl suffers from a rare disorder which turns her skin to stone

A 7-years old girl suffering from a rare disease which turns her skin to stone. She is suffering from an incurable condition called ichthyosis. Ichthyosis is an incurable condition that causes dry, thickened skin that can look like stone or fish scales. 

It is usually inherited. Children can inherit it from parents who showed no signs of the disease.  

Patients are likely to suffer from redness, blisters, and skin coming off as well as overheating and itching.

The little girl lives in a tribal district in Dantewada. The rough blisters have covered her arms, legs and most of her back. It is difficult to walk for her in this condition.

Video footage shows her legs, arms and most of her back is covered with blisters. Scaly skin covered most of her body.

There is little health care available in the young girl’s district, meaning she has to travel into the city for medical attention. 

A dermatologist from Dantewada Hospital specified the condition as ‘epidermolytic ichthyosis’. 

Ichthyosis is not usually life-threatening, but there is no cure and patients are likely to show the symptoms for life. Patients who are suffering from ichthyosis experience overheating because of the reduced ability of sweating due to scaly skin.
