IamA 19 Year Old With a rare Skin Condition Called Epidermolytic Hyperkeratosis! AMA!
At birth I was diagnosed with the hereditary skin condition called Epidermolytic Hyperkeratosis which effects 1 in 200k to 300k people globally.
When people with my skin condition are born they are often times missing large patches of skin, and have massive blisters. Also, it's quite common to develop staph infections while just a few weeks old because of the missing epidermis layers. Now that I'm older, most jointed areas of my body have a large amount of scaly or callused skin.
I'd like to spread awareness about my condition and enlighten others on what growing up is like with the condition and how it has effected my outlooks on things. So AMA!

Thank you guys for all the love. It really means a lot to me and all the other people in this thread that are suffering on the outside and in some cases on the inside <3
Ive replied to like 500 people. Im declaring myself HONORARY BEST OP EVER at least until my fifteen minutes of Reddit fame wear out.
Thank you all so much for letting me spread awareness for all the skin conditions out there. I never expected front page. I didn't expect any of this. I'm almost speechless at the kind words you guys have thrown into my face. Oh and to those of you that think im funny: That means more to me than anything. Thats what I live for. Making people breathe heavily out of their nose.
Now if Only I beat Daniel Radcliffe's AMA... Thatd really show him.
Thanks for the gold guys!!! Im gonna go try to figure out how i can convert reddit gold into Civilization Beyond Earth. Im sure 4chan will accept this alien currency
It is Done. The questions have stopped. And I have enlightened many. Off I go to OP Heaven. Thank you all for 12 Hours of awesome questions and hundreds of requests for dick pics. Oh and for front page status too. That was rad.
