Iama girl with a condition that turns her sweat the color of blood. AMA
My short bio: I know what some of you are thinking: "this is fake. It's just dye."
I get that a lot. But I assure you that it's a very real and sometimes challenging condition. From what I understand, it's the result of a malfunction in the cells that control pigment in the skin. I know that other colors have been reported (black, yellow, orange), but my sweat has always been this blood-ish red. It's especially apparent on my palms, thighs, abdomen and torso, and...er...my lower areas, mainly because it tends to stain my skin.
Feel free to ask me about it if you're curious! Four or five years ago, I never would have posted a pic like this on the internet, but I've come to accept it as part of who I am.
*EDIT 1: Sorry, I forgot to mention what it's called: "Chromhidrosis"
*EDIT 2: I am absolutely exhausted and I need to go to bed, but PLEASE don't hesitate to continue posting your questions and thoughts. I will check on them first thing tomorrow morning!
*EDIT 3: Morning, all! (Or at least, it's morning where I am - it's just before 5 AM). After I get some coffee in me, I'll get to answering more of your questions.
*EDIT 4: It looks as though the questions are coming to a halt, so I just wanted to thank everybody who contributed and took interest in myself and my condition! You're all awesome <3 But if you still want to ask me something, feel free to either post here (while still able) or PM me!
Thank you so much for your interest! It means so much <3
