Brothers Suffer From Rare Condition Similar To Vampirism
0006 MANDY I have heard mentions, people saying about the condition being like a vampire and the teeth. I remember, it were funny really, we went trick or treating and the boys already had their teeth y'know and their friends had to guy and buy plastic ones to put in, so they sounded like uh, looked like vampires. And the white skin as well, they're very fair skinned, so, it's very similar. 0031 SIMON People do say we look like vampires sometimes because we have pale skin and we have our front teeth. I'm not really fussed,.
I think it's quite cool to be like a vampire. 0048 SIMON HED stands for Hypohidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia, and basically it means you can't sweat, and are pale and and fine hair.

Baby born with rare skin condition that leaves her looking like a DALMATIAN
A BABY girl has been born with a rare skin condition which leaves her with DALMATIAN like spots across her body. The little girl's parents are now trying to raise money so that she can undergo laser treatment. The large moles cover much of her skin and it is feared that the spots will cause her problems with being accepted as she grows older. Twomonthold Wu Zimiao was born with congenital melanocytic nevus a type of mole and birthmark that affects about one per cent of babies worldwide. Large congenital nevi are caused by mutations in the body's cells during early embryonic.
Development there is no known method of prevention. While the moles do not cause any physical pain, they are often removed to prevent cancer, as well as to avert psychosocial issues in the future. Little Zimiao's father, Wu Xianpo, said he had never seen anything like it in his life but was relieved to hear that the condition is easier to treat the younger the patient is. The dark spots are mainly on Zimiao's left shoulder and right arm but they also appear on her head and back.
